Smart Strategies for NYC – Paying for Transportation
For residents, visitors, and businesses, New York City is the City of Opportunity. In common with many major cities, NYC faces serious challenges. High commercial rents pressure the profitability of businesses. Shortages of affordable housing hurt residents, and often lead to long commutes. The public transportation system struggles to cope with an increasing population.
Enabling people to move around quickly and cheaply has economic and social benefits. In addition, fewer vehicles on city streets will reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and enhance public safety.
