Development of a Mileage Based User Fee Funding and Deployment Planner for State Transportation Funding Agencies

Due to shortfalls in fuel taxes and increases in fleetwide fuel economy, states are looking for new ways to fund transportation project needs. A common proposal is to transition to mileage-based user fees (MBUFs). The research team will leverage data on historical highway construction and funding to create a decision support tool incorporating data on demographics, vehicle use, and roadway types. State transportation funding agencies can use this tool to assess the effectiveness of various MBUF strategies over time.
