San Francisco congestion tax enthusiasm loses steam

January 5th, 2009 · 2 Comments

I noticed this article in the New York Times on the weekend, suggesting that San Francisco is considering a congestion tax (in the first part of the story) but then (in the second part of the story) hinting that there’s less enthusiasm for it in these economically troubled times. Nothing like a recession to work magic on the roads!

It makes me wonder whether there has been a similar decline in enthusiasm here for all of the different kinds of road-pricing that were being contemplated as a way of ensuring that the Gateway Project didn’t just result in a flood of new traffic and new congestion.
