Congestion Pricing for NY? Lessons From London

Tuesday, Mar 20, 2007

New York City is witnessing an unprecedented debate over the possible implementation of a congestion pricing scheme to reduce vehicle traffic. Praised by supporters, congestion pricing also has harsh critics. One constant in this debate—in New York City and other major cities where the strategy is being considered— is London's congestion pricing scheme, which has been hailed as a huge success since it began in February 2003.

Sponsors: New York Academy of Sciences, Environmental Sciences Section & Transportation Research Center at CUNY-CCNY

Speaker: Malcolm Murray-Clark, Director of Congestion Charging at Transport for London (TfL)one of the key architects of London's program, . Mr. Murray-Clark will discuss the details of London's program.

Commentor: Dr. Robert Paaswell, Director of the University Transportation Research Center at the City College of New York (and former Executive Director of the Chicago Transit Authority) will distill lessons from London's program, explaining the unique considerations local policymakers must keep in mind as they explore whether to pursue a similar strategy in New York City.
