Join StreetsblogMASS and GBH Forum Network for a panel discussion on congestion pricing with journalists and advocates in MA and NYC.

About this Event

Excess traffic is bad for residents, businesses, and visitors – while the city’s extensive transit network needs investment. Sound familiar?

The difference: after years of advocacy and planning, the Board of NYC's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) recently approved the city's congestion pricing program to start June 30, 2024. With approximately 60% of 25,000 public comments showing support for the policy, it's evident that the New York region is ready for change.

Join StreetsblogMASS and GBH Forum Network for a panel discussion on congestion pricing. Should we consider congestion pricing in Massachusetts? What can we learn from New York? Is this an opportunity to spur investment in transit, put Massachusetts back on track to meet our climate goals, and create a more equitable region? How will Massachusetts be able to deal with any adverse impacts other cities have encountered?

We’ll hear from journalists and advocates in MA and NYC to gather insights and perspectives.

We are working on making this event hybrid; more information to come.
