Outlining this list of improvements to coincide with CZC (or its equivalent) is key to any argument in favor of it.

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

After the hell that was navigating through the city yesterday evening (even though acknowledging that it was Valentine's day and evening traffic was even worse than "normal"), I would gladly fork over the $5 if it means reducing the congestion.

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

Would congestion toll proceeds go towards transit to therefore help reduce congestion?

That is the general pattern seen elsewhere. Usually, though, you issue bonds to improve transit first, then apply the congestion tolls to pay back the bonds. Carrot and stick. Better transit AND costlier driving.
