Costs of Alternative Revenue Generation Systems (P12-5797)
This report, which was published through the National Cooperative Highway Research Program of the TRB as NCHRP Report #689, (http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/nchrp/nchrp_rpt_689.pdf), summarizes the cost to administer, collect, and enforce each aforementioned revenue systems as well as compares these costs among transportation funding mechanisms. For motor fuel taxes, the cost analysis is focused on eight states, which were chosen based on a set of criteria (e.g., geographic diversity, point of taxation). As part of this analysis, cost data for 14 tolling agencies have been collected. These agencies include older turnpike systems, more recently established toll agencies, and private companies that operate toll facilities under concession agreements. For VMT fees, the costs examined in this report are based on the data for a proposed system in the Netherlands. For motor fuel taxes and tolling, 3 to 5 years of cost data have been collected. Cost data were also collected for four cordon pricing systems (London, Oslo, Stockholm, and Milan) and for one parking pricing system (Westminster, United Kingdom).
