New Mobility and the User Fee Concept

The objective of this research is to develop a toolkit for transportation agencies that addresses how revenue-related strategies (e.g., taxes, fees, and subsidies) support policy objectives and shape the deployment of new mobility options. The toolkit should assist agencies to develop, evaluate, implement, and administer revenue-related strategies for new mobility options that transport people and goods.  At a minimum, the research should include the following: (1) New and evolving transportation options for people and goods that interact with the existing built environment and travel throughout an area; (2) Incentives and disincentives that result from revenue-related strategies;  (3) Policy implications of revenue-related strategies for new mobility options including revenue potential, mobility, travel demand, safety, equity, environment, economic development, infrastructure design, operations, and maintenance; (4) Mechanisms for revenue collection and distribution for different mobility options in different scenarios; (5) The ease and difficulty of implementing and enforcing different revenue-related strategies for new mobility options; and (6) Potential roles and responsibilities of governmental organizations and private entities.
