About the Central Business District Tolling Program: The Central Business District Tolling Program (CBDTP) would lower traffic and help MTA improve its transit system. Vehicles that enter or remain in Manhattan’s Central Business District (CBD) would be tolled. Prior studies have shown that programs like the CBDTP can improve air quality. Investing in an improved mass transit system could help promote equity by providing expanded access to the system.
