Tolling Plan Would Shutter Businesses

Tolling Plan Would Shutter Businesses, Cut Jobs, RDS Owner Says. He recently voiced his opposition to a controversial tolling plan for the Central Business District in New York. The plan, which is designed to ease congestion and raise money for public transportation, would adversely impact local delivery services and other small businesses making critical trips in and out of the city, Zogby said during a hearing before state and local transportation officials.

Tolling Plan Would Shutter Businesses

“During the pandemic, it’s not an exaggeration to say delivery workers kept our city running,” Zogby said. He questioned the logic of punishing essential workers and businesses that keep the city vibrant and successful.

If the plan is approved, Zogby said, “More small businesses will shutter and we will lose more jobs.”

He pointed out that many of these deliveries involve critical goods, such as medications, lab results, specimens, medical equipment, groceries, meals, and critical parts.

Zogby told the panel that civic and business leaders have a moral responsibility to develop better solutions that don’t punish small businesses, especially those companies that kept NYC afloat during the darkest days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Zogby also took part in a separate meeting in which logistics industry leaders discussed the impact of the plan. If you would like a one-on-one meeting with Larry to discuss this topic or others, you can schedule your visit today.
