I think not because Uber does really bad in traffic that's why they're doing better at night then in the daytime ?

Congestion pricing will only encourage the city to put MORE cars on the streets.  It's a never ending source of income which will help to make up what they lost in medallion sales.

Dirty little secret - they don't actually care about congestion.

there have been longer waits on the Uber app without there being a surge, that cant be good for them , shows too many drivers and they cant move, but when there there's no traffic there fast . can NY ever be without traffic?

I was looking at Uber's app this morning and it was a 6/7 minute wait . passengers can"t be happy with that,  VIVA congestion!

Had a British passenger last week, asked him about the 'congestion pricing' in London.

He said it had an effect for a few weeks, but all of the cars came back and they pay the fine now for basically no reason.

Politicians don't seem to grasp that people need to drive to make a living, and there aren't enough non-commercial drivers who would leave their cars at home to justify it.
