The Eastern Transportation Coalition recently completed its first International mileage-based Truck Pilot (ITP) exploring the potential of a Mileage-Based User Fee (MBUF) to support sustainable transportation funding.
We all depend on a well-functioning transportation system that gets you to where you need to go, delivers packages to your door, and keeps groceries on the shelves.
But as vehicles go farther on less fuel and some stop using any fuel at all, it becomes harder to maintain our aging transportation system.
Learn why an MBUF might be the solution.
The Eastern Transportation Coalition (the Coalition) is a partnership of 17 Eastern U.S. states and Washington, D.C. working together to address transportation challenges. As part of this work, we’re exploring the feasibility of MBUF as a replacement for the pay-at-the-pump tax.
We equip policymakers with information from real-world MBUF pilots, public opinion surveys, focus groups, and data analysis, so they can make informed decisions about how to fund transportation in the future.
The Coalition’s demonstration pilots, surveys, and analyses have shown that an MBUF can be a viable alternative to the pay-at-the-pump fuel tax.
