New York City has always been “the place to be,” in so many spheres: entertainment, business, lifestyle and more. But, all of that comes at a price. And it seems that one of the biggest price tags is transportation and mobility.
According to a recent article in Crain’s New York by Scott Rechler, there are many things that can be done. Move New York’s has already started this process with a logical congestion pricing plan created by transportation experts. Other ideas include bringing in a traffic management strategy to lower tolls on overnight deliveries while increasing them during peak time.
In general, Rechler believes there needs to be a more efficient use of the transportation infrastructure that is already in place, such as taking greater advantage of traffic-enforcement cameras (which can be relatively easily installed) and invoking more radical fines for roadway misdemeanors.
