Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Thursday warned of a possible 30 percent subway fare increase if state lawmakers do not approve a congestion pricing plan that would pay for improvements to the subway system.
Mr. Cuomo threw down the gauntlet in a speech in Manhattan, pressuring state lawmakers who are reluctant to support his proposal with the idea of a staggering fare increase that would undoubtedly infuriate transit riders. Transit officials are already planning to raise fares this spring by about four percent.
“Either the rider pays in fares and tolls or it’s congestion pricing,” Mr. Cuomo said at a luncheon sponsored by the Association for a Better New York. “That’s the real choice.”
The governor’s blunt assessment was his most forceful argument for the proposal since he first embraced congestion pricing — a plan to toll drivers entering the busiest parts of Manhattan to raise money for the failing subway system — two years ago.
Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat in his third term, has made congestion pricing one of his top legislative priorities in Albany this year, but some lawmakers are concerned about pushback from drivers.
He acknowledged that congestion pricing would be a “politically difficult battle” this year.
“Why? Politicians do not like to vote for toll increases — myself included,” the governor said.
But congestion pricing offered the best option, he said, to raise money for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which oversees the subways, buses and commuter railroads. All of the systems are struggling to provide reliable service.
Congestion pricing has a long history in Albany, where Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg failed to garner enough support for the idea about a decade ago. Mr. Cuomo said his proposal could raise about billion for the transit agency.
Under a 30 percent fare increase, the price of a monthly MetroCard could jump to 7, from the current price of 1. The price of a single swipe could increase to well above .
Mr. Cuomo revived the idea of congestion pricing in 2017 after the subway descended into crisis and it became clear that a new revenue source was needed. But supporters of the proposal say Mr. Cuomo did not push hard enough last year to convince lawmakers to support the idea.
Mr. Cuomo’s comments on Thursday suggest that he is serious about winning approval for the proposal this year and wants to frame congestion pricing as the best choice among many difficult options. But Mr. Cuomo also slammed the transportation authority, calling it a “disgrace” and a “governmental Frankenstein.”
Mr. Cuomo says he wants more control over the system, though he already has near total control of the transit agency. Still, Mr. Cuomo urged lawmakers to approve rules to improve the agency, including reorganizing the board to “put someone in charge” and to start a “forensic audit” to determine reasonable costs for its capital plan.
The authority has said it could need as much as billion for its next five-year capital program — a staggering figure that is nearly double the cost of its current capital plan. That includes about billion for Andy Byford’s “Fast Forward” plan to modernize the subway.
Mr. Cuomo’s speech had a silly tone at times — perhaps an attempt to grab attention for admittedly dry topics like railroad procurements. It featured a peculiar slide show suggesting that Arnold Schwarzenegger, as the “Terminator,” might save the subway, or that Chris Christie, driving a yellow hummer SUV, should pay higher tolls to enter from New Jersey.
Democratic leaders in the Senate and the Assembly said they were considering congestion pricing, but did not enthusiastically endorse it.
“Senate Democrats are prioritizing the need to fix the crumbling M.T.A. with dedicated revenues implemented in a fair manner,” said Mike Murphy, a spokesman for Senate Democrats. “We will discuss congestion pricing and other M.T.A. solutions as a conference and move aggressively toward a solution.”
Opposition to congestion pricing has generally come from lawmakers who represent the boroughs outside Manhattan and the suburbs. They have argued that tolls would unfairly burden their constituents, some of whom rely on cars because they do not have access to reliable public transit.
Mr. Cuomo sought to address those concerns by noting in his speech that few people in the region commute to Manhattan in cars. Only about 1.3 percent of Brooklyn residents, 2.2 percent of Queens residents and 2.2 percent of Westchester County residents drive to work in Manhattan, according to census figures.
But Mr. Cuomo has not said how high the tolls might be. A task force created by Mr. Cuomo proposed last year that drivers pay .52 to enter Manhattan south of 60th Street.
The governor’s office wants the tolls to begin in 2021. Mr. Cuomo still has to work with lawmakers on the details, including different fees for cars and trucks and at certain times of the day, with higher prices expected during rush hour.
Congestion pricing has been debated in New York City since at least the 1970s. It has already been embraced by cities like London, Singapore and Stockholm.
Transit advocates praised Mr. Cuomo’s support for congestion pricing. Nick Sifuentes, executive director of Tri-State Transportation Campaign, said lawmakers could no longer kick the can down the road.
“The onus is now on every single senator and assembly member,” he said.B:
