Crowd Sourcing Congestion Pricing
March 25th, 2008
WNYC’s Brian Leher show is trying the “wisdom of crowds” approach to the congestion pricing debate. He is asking listeners to pour over the entire 41-page bill proposed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and parse the details on their message board. Today, the program also offers online interviews with Michael O’Loughlin, director of the Campaign for New York’s Future, and Aaron Naparstek, the editor of Streetsblog. Both are proponents of the mayor’s plan.
Also a new poll finds that New York state residents oppose Mayor Bloomberg’s congestion-pricing plan, but would back the proposal if they believed the money would, as pledged, be used to improve mass transit.
