81% of New Yorkers Support Congestion Pricing Plan

Posted01/Jul/2007 01:25:00

NY Press reports on a recent poll conducted by Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates which indicated that 81% of residents of the city, Long Island and Westchester and Rockland counties "supported the proposal after hearing that the city’s population will increase by an estimated 1 million people over the next 20 years".

The plans calls for a car tax which would apply to all non-resident commuters entering Manhattan below 86th Street between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. during the week.

P.S. Other polls conducted as recently as one month ago indicated that majority of New Yorkers were against the plan. Either the mood has changed dramatically over the past few weeks or the "clarification" added by the pollsters (see above) tends to change the outcome.
