Congestion Pricing Hearings @ City Hall TODAY & TONIGHT

Per Streetsblog:
The morning session, beginning at 10:00, will be open for public viewing but closed to public testimony.

The evening session begins at 6:00. Members of the public who wish to testify may sign up on a first-come first-served basis, beginning at 5:30. Public testimonies are limited to two minutes each.

Needless to say, it is important that the council (and the media) hear from as many pro-pricing citizens as possible. The Campaign for New York's future suggests bringing signs or wearing pro-pricing t-shirts, whether you are able to testify or not. CFNY would like to hear from those who will be attending, if possible; contact Katie Savin at

The hearings will take place in the City Council Chambers, City Hall, Second Floor.

I am hoping to squeeze in at 6:00 - I have my first CB6 Public Safety/Environmental Committee meeting tonight in Park Slope at 6:30 . . . and there is no public testimony at the morning session. I can't stress enough how important it is to our transit infrastructure to get this passed.

Streetsblog also has a liveblog of the Committee hearings going on. The first two installments are here and here. Great summary of Jeanette Sadik-Khan testimony. Check it out.
