New York Governor Andrew Cuomo set to propose new congestion pricing plan to fix subways | abc7 NY

NEW YORK (WABC) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is set to propose a new congestion pricing plan to ease traffic in Midtown Manhattan and help fund the MTA.

If the governor gets his way, anyone going south of 60th Street will pay a new toll.

Last year’s proposal was $11.52 per trip for cars, and $25.34 for trucks. Sources say this year’s plan will probably be very similar.

All the new money, about $600 million a year, would go to fix the city’s subways.

“When everyone is in charge no one is in charge,” said Cuomo. “I am willing to assume responsibility but I’m not doing it without authority.”
