Editor’s Note:

A New York judge has temporarily blocked a state congestion pricing surcharge that would have Congestion Pricing fees to FHVs and yellow cabs, designed to help fund the MTA. The fee, which targets trips that touch a designated zone below 96th Street in Manhattan, was slated to begin on New Year’s Day. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Martin Shulman issued a temporary injunction so the court could review a last-minute lawsuit filed by cab drivers opposed to the fee. A hearing is scheduled for January 17.
