NYC Congestion Pricing

Approved by the City Council.

The key to its success - and popularity - will be whether it is REALLY REALLY EASY to actually pay the fee, with multiple methods of doing so. The system in London lets you do it by text message, cell phone, on the internet, and other ways.

People won't mind the fee so much as long as it isn't a giant pain in the ass to actually pay it. Perhaps someone could direct me, but I really haven't seen much coverage of what the payment mechanisms would be in New York.
