WHAT IS CONGESTION PRICING?
Congestion pricing is a program to manage our congested city streets.
Motorists would be charged a user fee to drive in specific areas or routes
during the most congested times of day. Motorists would choose to drive if
the convenience is worth the fee, use alternatives like transit, or drive
at a different time of day.
Fee revenues would be invested in transportation alternatives and
improvements benefiting all travelers, including drivers, transit riders,
carpoolers, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
TELL US WHAT YOU THINK
The San Francisco County Transportation Authority invites you to a series
of interactive workshops on its Mobility, Access and Pricing Study. Come
