AIA New York is deeply concerned with Governor Hochul’s plan to indefinitely suspend the implementation of New York City’s Congestion Pricing. Hochul announced the postponement today, June 5, 2024, just weeks before the plan was set to take effect, after rumblings of uncertainty began circulating in the press. 

As architects and design professionals, we are all aware of the successful examples implemented by our peer cities such as London, Stockholm, and Singapore, and we should not be left behind. This is why AIANY has led decades of advocacy efforts to make congestion pricing a reality. The program will alleviate traffic, reduce pollution, save lives, and create a multi-billion-dollar investment to modernize and upgrade the city’s aging public transit system which will be critical to New York’s future to continue operating as a global and dynamic city.  

We call on our members to reach out to your state legislators and to Governor Hochul immediately. Contact your elected officials with a form provided by the New York League of Conservation Voters and call Governor Hochul at 212-681-4580.
