Watch: Can you put a price on traffic in Boston?

By meerna Jun12,2024

The live broadcast will start on Monday at noon.

After years of advocacy and planning, New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) board was until recently poised to implement a city congestion pricing program that would help the city finance major upgrades to its transit system.

Join StreetsblogMASS and the GBH Forum Network on June 10 at the Boston Public Library for a panel discussion on congestion pricing. Should we consider implementing congestion pricing in Massachusetts? What can we learn from New York? Is this an opportunity to spur investment in transit, get Massachusetts back on track to meet our climate goals and create a more equitable region? How will Massachusetts be able to address the adverse impacts that other cities have experienced?

StreetsblogMASS editor Christian MilNeil will moderate a conversation with Boston Globe reporter Taylor Dolven, New York journalist and StreetsblogNYC contributor John Surico, and Reggie Ramos, Massachusetts executive director of transportation.

The event will be held at the GBH Studio at the Boston Public Library at 700 Boylston Street (next to the Boylston Green Line station). The conversation will also be broadcast live on YouTube and later on the GBH Forum network.
