What do you need to know about road usage charging?
Governments and automakers are racing to address climate concerns and meet evolving consumer demands for cleaner and more fuel-efficient vehicles. But, it’s a blow to the gas tax’s viability. To address this looming fiscal challenge, Road usage charging (RUC) has emerged as a powerful policy tool to implement user fees based on distance driven on the road network. RUC programs are gaining popularity as a means of paying for America’s surface transportation system.
