New York City will issue a request for proposals in April to firms interested in developing and operating a congestion-pricing system if the state Legislature and City Council enact authorizing legislation by the end of March, a city official said yesterday.

“We at [the New York City Department of Transportation] are … developing an RFP for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance for a congestion-pricing system,” Bruce Schaller, the DOT’s deputy commissioner for planning and sustainability, said at a conference here sponsored by the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association. “We plan to be ready to release the RFP shortly after the Legislature takes action in March.”
