Road Usage Charge Pilot Program Preliminary Findings (Oregon DOT, 2013)

The objective of the Road Usage Charge Pilot Program is to demonstrate several choices for measuring and paying a road usage charge that are easy for motorists to perform while maintaining an efficient collection system administered by multiple interoperable providers, including ODOT and private sector entities. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the detailed results of the first six weeks of the RUCPP, for which survey and other objective data are available. A final evaluation report that covers the entire four months of the RUCPP will be written after the completion of the RUCPP in March. This report provides background on road usage charging activities in Oregon, a description of the RUCPP and its evaluation, the evaluation results, and recommendations and conclusions for future pilot testing.
