Manhattan Chamber Issues Statement on "Clear Curbs" Congestion Pilot

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

 Statement from Jessica Walker, President of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce

“We applaud the Department of Transportation for acknowledging the detrimental impact that the Mayor's “Clear Curbs” congestion pilot is having on small businesses in Queens and Brooklyn, but today's decision is a half step that ignores the needs of Manhattan businesses. We hope the City will consider the full impact and unintended consequences of this program by ending the pilot in all three boroughs — including Manhattan —and devoting its attention to championing a robust congestion-pricing initiative.”
