BDB congestion plan is not all that

From AM-NY:

Don’t count on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s upcoming “congestion plan” to cut down on commute times.

While the mayor’s strategy to relieve street congestion is expected to be published in coming weeks, his administration has made it clear that commuters shouldn’t expect the plan to make much of an impact on traffic.

Details of the mayor’s strategy has been scarce so far, with Polly Trottenberg, the Department of Transportation commissioner only saying that it will target commercial delivery hours, parking regulations, and will incorporate data-driven approaches to certain points of gridlock.

In summation, much moneys will be spent to make the travels of the working taxpayers even more difficult and lengthier than before.

The plan, I am certain, is perfect...

I can see it now. Bike lanes and congestion pricing.

If they want to get serious about congestion in this city we are gonna have to do some Robert Moses style highway building.

Right, and where do all those cars go when they finally exit the Robert Moses style highway?

The mayor WANTS congestion. He wants to force us all out of cars, despite that subway ridership has already doubled.

Has anyone tried to drive into Manhattan lately? Uber and other tlc's have made it prohibitively miserably. At this point we should welcome congestion pricing.

the only solution is to cut the number of Uber and yellow cabs by at least 25 % and ban all passenger cars south of 125 st during business hours. Oh and most important cancell all parking privilege passes for all privately owned passenger cars, that means teachers, cops , firefighters,city emplyess and most important CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS AND THEIR CHAUFERED CARS. This way emergency vehicles, delivery trucks and service trucks can provide services in a reasonable time and cost to 9 million people.
