Passenger Vehicles &
Mileage-Based User Fees (MBUF)

Passenger Vehicles

The Eastern Transportation Coalition has been conducting a series of multi-phase, multi-year pilots to bring an Eastern U.S. perspective to the national discussion of how to establish sustainable and equitable transportation funding. The purpose of this work is to explore the feasibility and challenges of replacing the fuel tax with a mileage-based user fee (MBUF) in a multi-state environment.

Our passenger vehicle work has included four passenger vehicle pilots and analyses:

This work has included public opinion surveys, pilot participant surveys, focus groups, and examinations of tolling and congestion mitigation synergies.

This summer, we began additional MBUF passenger vehicle studies and pilots in Delaware, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Our goal is to learn more about the equity impacts of MBUF, MBUF system design, effective public outreach, and MBUF rate-setting.
