What Do Americans Think About Federal Tax Options to Support Transportation? Results from Year Twelve of a National Survey

This research project will design and administer an online national public opinion poll that asks 2,500 US residents their views on various transportation tax and fee options available at the state and federal level. The questionnaire will build off the authors’ 2010 - 2020 trend surveys, using many of the same questions, but modifying others and adding in new questions. The survey will gather information on support levels for a variety of transportation revenue tools, including raising the federal gas tax rate and replacing the gas tax with a mileage fee. Finally, the survey will collect standard socio-demographic data so that the responses can be analyzed by these factors, as well as by region of the country.
