“New York City has the largest transit system in the nation, with millions of riders commuting via MTA subways, buses and commuter rail every single day. Thousands of those commuters  come from your own districts, relying on MTA service to get to their jobs and schools, and to access health care. Congestion pricing will provide $15 billion for upgrades, expansions, and accessibility improvements to make this system the best in the world, while simultaneously cutting dangerous vehicle emissions in our air at a time when climate disaster looms, and  reducing congestion for people who must drive into the core of Manhattan.”
