To ensure the voices of citizens along the Eastern U.S. are included in the national discussion of how to establish a sustainable and equitable transportation funding approach, The Eastern Transportation Coalition, formerly known as the I-95 Corridor Coalition, is conducting a series of multi-phase, multi-year pilots. The purpose of this work is to explore the feasibility, including the associated challenges, of replacing the fuel tax with a mileage-based user fee (MBUF) in a multi-state environment. The Coalition started with focused pilots in Delaware and Pennsylvania and expanded to include pilots in other states along the Eastern U.S.
Part of the Coalition’s 2020-2021 MBUF Work, this pilot included nearly 400 transportation stakeholders in Delaware, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. More than 1.45 million miles of driving data were collected as participants drove through 27 states. The 2020-2021 MBUF Work also included the nation’s first National Truck Pilot, a Tolling Entity-Led Pilot, and a Geographic Equity Analysis.
The 2019 Passenger Vehicle Pilot expanded on the Coalition’s passenger vehicle pilot. This pilot included members of the general public and included nearly 900 drivers during the four-month pilot, with the majority residing in Delaware and Pennsylvania. More than three million miles of driving data were collected as participants drove through 42 states and Canada while participating in the pilot.

The 2018 Passenger Vehicle Pilot was the initial passenger vehicle pilot conducted by the Coalition. The Pilot included 155 transportation stakeholders along the East Coast, with the majority of participants residing in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Focus areas included managing out-of-state mileage, interoperability with tolling, and premium features available to drivers with MBUF technology.
