What Is Road Usage Charging?

Nate Bryer, WSP USA senior director of road usage charging mobility operations, outlines why U.S. states are looking to replace fuel taxes with mileage-based user fees.

A Road Usage Charging program charges motorists a per-mile fee to use the roadways rather than a tax that is determined by how much fuel was used to reach a destination.

The emergence of fuel-efficient and electric vehicles, along with a tax rate that has not been increased since 1993, resulted in funding falling behind rising construction costs.
