Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today called on the State Legislature to enact a congestion pricing plan to fund the MTA's capital program in order to prevent a nearly 30% MTA fare hike or further deterioration of the transit system. During a speech at the Association for a Better New York, the Governor said the only logical and realistic option to provide an ongoing and dedicated revenue stream to the MTA is through congestion pricing, which the Governor included in his 2020 Executive Budget proposal. Otherwise the Legislature risks saddling New Yorkers with significant toll and fare increases by the MTA.
