San Francisco Weighs Congestion Pricing Options
"Charging people more for anything is always a tough sell. Talk about reaching deeper into people's pockets when the economy is in the tank is even more difficult."
"'We're going to have to get buy-in,' said Jose Luis Moscovich, executive director of the San Francisco County Transportation Authority."
"It's his agency that, with the help of a $1 million federal grant, has been studying the feasibility of congestion pricing in San Francisco."
"The idea will inch forward Tuesday, when the authority's directors - a group made up of the city's 11 elected members of the Board of Supervisors - will be presented with various pricing scenarios and toll-zone locations, and an analysis of the potential benefits and disadvantages."
