A commuter quandary

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's "congestion pricing'' plan to discourage motor vehicles from Manhattan streets during the day is not just a New York matter. The proposal to charge $8 per car and $21 for trucks to drive in midtown - though far from a done deal - might make New Jersey commuters think twice and switch to mass transit if enacted. But does NJ Transit have the rail cars and buses to meet the demand?

Gov. Corzine asked that question Monday, noting he wants to be cooperative but has to look out for his state's residents. It illustrates how interconnected the New York metro area is and how one city's or state's initiative cannot be taken in a vacuum. In addition to personal contact with the Bloomberg administration, it would be well for Corzine to send a representative to monitor all meetings about the proposal. New Jersey can't afford not to be ready.

It costs so much already to visit NYC, and the thought that it would cost $8...before we would even park the car (!!) is a despicable notion. Forget visiting New York for the day anymore.

We all have to wonder what Bloomberg is really thinking of with this congestion pricing tax scheme. Maybe he mostly just wants a new tax. Just wrap it up in 'concern for the environment', and people can just demonize those who oppose it.

If he cares so much about traffic jams, congestion and air pollution, why does he let Park Avenue be blocked off? Why doesn't he do anything about that?

Pershing Square Restaurant blocks Park Avenue going South at 42nd St. for 12 hours a day/6 months of the year! This Causes Massive Congestion & Air Pollution!

But apparently it does not bother NYC's Nanny-in-Chief Mike "Congestion Pricing Tax" Bloomberg? Check out the map!
