Mileage-Based User Fee Study

Colorado's current system of transportation finance is insufficient to maintain the state's highway and transit network, let alone adequately address anticipated population, employment, and visitor growth. Mileage-based user fees (MBUF) involve the collection of user fees that are directly scalar with use of designated roadways. This study has been designed to evaluate the policy parameters surrounding a potential pilot program, create a preliminary concept of operations for the conduct of MBUF, and develop a framework for testing this program in Colorado. The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) intends to develop a scope of work for the pilot program and produce a competitive proposal for Federal grant funding. The goals for the MBUF pilot program are to demonstrate the potential effectiveness of MBUF as a funding strategy and engage the public, stakeholders, and institutions in the possibility of full-scale MBUF implementation in Colorado.
