MTA revises format of its congestion pricing plan set to take effect in 2024
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is tweaking its congestion pricing plan in an effort to help save Long Island drivers money when commuting into Manhattan.
Under the revised format, driving below 60th Street would be at least 50% cheaper between midnight and 4 a.m.
Discounts would also be offered to anyone earning $50,000 or less a year if they drive into the congestion zone more than 10 times a month.
In addition to easing traffic - the new funds would be used for infrastructure improvements at the MTA.
It is expected to take effect in 2024.
