About Keep NYC Congestion Tax Free
Keep NYC Congestion Tax Free represents a diverse coalition of civic, business, and labor organizations and businesses throughout New York City. We share a simple vision: to keep our city congestion tax free. Our coalition opposes the imposition of tolls to enter the City's (Manhattan) Central Business District ("CBD") via toll readers installed on City Streets or on the City's FREE East River and Harlem River Bridges. Our members previously opposed the $8 fee ($21 for trucks) that then-Mayor Bloomberg proposed to impose on drivers entering Manhattan below 86th Street and all subsequent iterations of so-called congestion pricing, including the most current scheme that proponents advocate charging drivers as much as $25 per day ($125 per week; over $500 monthly; more than $6,000 annually) to enter the CBD! Our members urge New Yorkers to deliver a simple message to our legislators: "Say no to any toll-tax fee scheme that seeks to charge us to enter Manhattan's CBD." Many supporters and coalition members propose alternatives that better address traffic issues in our entire City and provide new and fair sources to support mass transit.
Please look through own our reports, statements and commentaries and the reports of others including dedicated public officials.
Keep NYC Congestion Tax Free will explore the issues and share further commentaries as long as efforts continue to impose this congestion tax or any other scheme to impose tolls on our FREE East River and Harlem River bridges on us.
