A Decision Support System to Assess Disruptive Impacts of Alternative Transportation Financing Approaches

Central to the development and preservation of a safe and efficient multimodal transportation system is the establishment of a comprehensive set of financing approaches to ensure that proper transportation system investments are made on a continuing and systemic basis. The objective of this research is to initiate the development of a decision support system (DSS) to assist State Departments of Transportation in the formulation and evaluation of alternative transportation financing approaches. Such approaches include user based approaches such as tolls, vehicle miles traveled (VMT) fees, restructured fuel tax schemes, and transit fares, and where necessary and appropriate such approaches employ innovative pricing strategies and disruptive technologies including infrastructure based, in-vehicle, telecommunication, and personal digital technologies and devices.
