Steve Morello, transportation pricing specialist, has worked on numerous major distance-based road usage charging (RUC) endeavors in the U.S. promoting open systems while he maintained and developed contact with expert advisors and industry players around the world.
He has three decades of experience in the transportation sector focusing on the development of projects covering mobility pricing, light and heavy vehicle distance-based charging, intelligent transportation systems rollout, traditional tolling, electronic road pricing, and automated enforcement.
Steve is a member of the Mileage-Based User Fee Alliance (MBUFA) Advisory Council and has been a member of the group since 2012, following his return to the United States after living and working in France for over two decades. During his time abroad, he managed the development, pilot testing and evaluation of integrated, multi-modal ITS demonstration projects as well as urban congestion and distance-based charging initiatives.
"As the concept of mileage-based user fees move forward in various parts of the world, I will strive to share our U.S.-based experience in various aspects such as stakeholder engagement,” Steve says. In 2011, Morello co-founded Milestone Solutions, a North America-based firm and global leader in RUC and pricing that was acquired by CDM Smith in June 2021.
