The draft proposal indicates most drivers would pay $15 to enter the Central Business District.
A draft report obtained by NY1 shows a $15 price tag for most vehicles under New York City’s upcoming congestion pricing program, according to an article by Spectrum News staff and Samantha Liebman.
The program includes all of Manhattan south of Central Park, excluding certain major highways. “Congestion toll rates would apply from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays, and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends, the draft said,” with toll rates 75 percent lower at night.
The article highlights more details from the report, which is not a final version of the program’s pricing scheme. “The tolling is expected to generate $1 billion annually to help the MTA finance $15 billion in bonds.”
