When Mayor Bloomberg's attempt to pass a congestion pricing plan fell short, a new group emerged to figure out what went wrong and plot a new path toward a program to reduce congestion in Manhattan and create new dedicated funds for the MTA. That effort became Move New York, led by Alex Matthiessen, our guest for this podcast, and led to the "Fix NYC" panel assembled by Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2017.

With the panel's recommendations out and both Cuomo and Move New York supporting them, Matthiessen discussed the path to this moment and what lies ahead. Hear his insights into the next steps and how those supporting a congestion pricing plan can win passage in Albany this year.

Listen to the full conversation and let us know what you think -- we're on Twitter @TweetBenMax and @jarrettmurphy, with guest @AlexMatthiessen of @MoveNewYork. You can listen to the episode through the embedded audio below or download the episode wherever you get your podcasts.
