Maryland Mileage-Based User Fee (MBUF) Pilot

Help us explore the future of transportation funding in Maryland!

WHAT IS THE Maryland MBUF Pilot?

To better understand if a Mileage-Based User Fee (MBUF) could work in Maryland, The Eastern Transportation Coalition (the Coalition), in partnership with the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), is conducting a Pilot program for stakeholders to experience an MBUF and provide feedback on what they like and don’t like.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

ENROLL

Enrollment will open February 1, 2024! You will sign up through GeoToll, the technology provider for this Pilot. Since this Pilot is a simulation, you will never be charged any fees nor required to pay anything to participate. Grab the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) from your vehicle in advance to make enrollment a breeze!

To thank individuals for their participation, a $100 incentive is available for eligible participants after the Pilot is completed. Click here to learn more and to see if you are eligible.

ACTIVATE

You may select how you want to record your miles when you sign up. Choose from four mileage reporting options (MROs) based on what works best for you: Smart Mobile App with GPS, In-Vehicle Telematics with GPS, OBD Plug-in Device with GPS, or Odometer Capture on App without GPS. If a plug-in device is selected, you will receive it in the mail after enrollment is complete. Then, activate and drive! Not sure which MRO to select? Click here to compare your options.

The Pilot has strict privacy protection measures in place to safeguard your data, including:

  • Limiting the amount of personal information required for participation,
  • Prohibiting the sale of data to any third-party entities,
  • Requiring all personal identification data to be destroyed after the Pilot,
  • Giving participants the option to opt out of GPS (location-based) services, and
  • Providing a participant agreement that states what data will be collected and how any personal identifiable information will be used and then destroyed.

DRIVE

Drive as you normally do! Your GeoToll dashboard will collect and manage your daily mileage and fuel use through May 31, 2024.

In addition, you will receive monthly statements to show how many miles you have driven and the cost difference between a traditional fuel tax and an MBUF approach. No actual money is involved or exchanged.

DEACTIVATE

After the Pilot ends on May 31, 2024, uninstall the app, unsubscribe from the vehicle telematics, or mail back your device.

Participants will be sent a Final Participant Survey shortly after the Pilot is completed. Participants who complete the survey and are eligible for the incentive program will receive their $100 gift card via email. Click here to learn more about the incentive program.
