etails of NYC congestion pricing proposal unveiled

Cars driving through the busiest parts of Manhattan could be charged $11.52 one-way under a new congestion pricing proposal, according to The New York Times and others.

The proposal, prepared by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Fix NYC advisory panel, recommends trucks to be charged $25.34, while those riding in cabs could face a $2 to $5 surcharge. The fees would apply to vehicles driving below 60th St. in Manhattan, and would not apply to those who take FDR Drive.

The full congestion pricing report will be presented to Cuomo on Friday. If approved by the state legislature, the plan could go into effect as early as 2020.
