Physical analysis of potential impacts from the Congestion Pricing plan on Northern Manhattan

WE ACT for Environmental Justice and the Urban Design Lab (UDL), in collaboration with the Center for Sustainable Urban Development (CSUD), conducted this study to examine the potential impacts of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s PlaNYC 2030 proposal for congestion pricing in Harlem and other communities that border the congestion-pricing zone. The study describes the plan put forward, reviews the evidence on potential parking and traffic impacts in Northern Manhattan, and examines in particular the possibility of park and ride activity. It also includes a discussion of the plan’s potential impact on subway and bus service and identifies steps that the city, state, and Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) can take to improve the plan’s outcomes.
