Hey, here's an idea: Why not make the developers who cause all the overdevelopment which leads to congestion pay money to the MTA?
Civic groups that fought for congestion pricing say the real estate industry, which already funds the MTA through taxes on mortgage recordings and sales, could be fair game for new revenue.
"I think real estate is a definite target, since the value of real estate is tied to the availability of the subway system," said Jeff Zupan, a transportation expert at the Regional Plan Association.
With congestion pricing dead, real estate taxes eyed for MTA funding
I'm all for it.
