MTA NYC Transit President Howard H. Roberts' Statement on Mass Transit Use and Congestion Pricing

I want to take this opportunity to put into perspective my comments from yesterday's NYC Transit Committee Meeting with respect to congestion pricing. "No room at the inn" during rush hours on the 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 & E lines does not mean that NYC Transit cannot fully support the ridership increases projected for the impact of congestion pricing. These six lines have ample capacity off-peak; we have 16 other subway lines with unused peak capacity, and a bus system.
