what has been done
What has been done?

Initial pilots looked at feasibility.

Is this even a good idea?

where are we now
Where are we now?

Focus is increasingly on how to implement

the minnesota pilot in a nutshell
The Minnesota Pilot (in a nutshell)

Focus on off-the-shelf technology components

Technology positioned as an optional discounting mechanism

national efforts
National Efforts
  • Exploratory Research on Technology Options for Collection of Road User Fees (Underway)
  • Additional federal efforts are unlikely at this time
    • There is no MBUF / VMT language in MAP 21
slide9

It is unlikely that any government entity will “force you to install a tracking device” in your car

  • Detailed location data is not necessary
  • Technology should be presented as an optional discounting mechanism
  • Mandating of safety related devices for OEMs is more likely
slide10

The fuel tax is likely to remain in place for a very long time

  • The Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) is not going anywhere
  • The fuel tax is cheap and easy to collect
slide11

A paradigm shift in how Americans view transportation will be required before serious consideration of VMT fees can occur

  • Perceptions of the personal vehicle and freedom of travel are changing
  • Generational differences in privacy concerns and technology acceptance
slide12

Equity issues are likely to play the biggest role in generating support for change

  • Funding shortfalls don’t click with the public
  • “Pay for what you use” has saliency
  • Oregon is emphasizing fairness in implementing fees on electric vehicles
