WE ACT for Environmental Justice and the UDL in collaboration with the Center for Sustainable Urban Development (CSUD) conducted this study to examine the potential impacts of Mayor Bloomberg’s PlaNYC 2030 proposal for congestion pricing in Harlem and other communities in New York City that border the congestion-pricing zone. The study begins with a description of the plan put forward by the Commission. The study then reviews the evidence on potential parking and traffic impacts in Northern Manhattan, and examines in particular the possibility of park-and-ride activity. This is followed by a discussion of the plan’s potential impact on subway and bus service. Finally, the study identifies steps that the City, State and MTA can take to improve the plan’s outcomes for Northern Manhattan.
