Cuomo Declares Congestion Pricing 'Moot'

On Thursday, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo released his urban agenda. Although the agenda didn't include any plans for transit, reporters in attendance at Cuomo's press conference asked him about transit issues.

Questioned about the MTA, Cuomo said “There’s going to be a need for more efficiency. More effectiveness, better management."

And asked about the idea of congestion pricing, Cuomo said “Congestion pricing was proposed. It was discussed. It was basically rejected by the legislature. I don’t know that there’s been any change in opinion. I think it’s moot."
