1 Oregon’s Road User Fee Pilot Program Presented to International Fuel Tax Agreement Managers’ Workshop September 2006 PowerPoint Presentation provided by: James Whitty, Manager Office of Innovative Partnerships and Alternative Funding

2 Road User Fee Task Force Legislative Mandate: “To develop a design for revenue collection for Oregon’s roads and highways that will replace the current system for revenue collection.”

3 Effect of New Technology Vehicles on Highway Fund Revenue

4 Conclusion In the future, gas tax revenue will not be the primary source for funding our roads.

5 A per-mile charge based on Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) within a state Replaces fuel tax for participating motorists A Solution: The Mileage Fee

6 Collection Possibilities Human Data Gathering Centralized Electronic Collection Collection at Fueling Stations

7 Structural Issues with Mileage Fee Collection Cost of Start Up and Operations Collection Enforcement Integration with Current Fuel Tax Collection System System Redundancy Ease of Use by Motoring Public

8 Oregon’s Mileage Fee Concept

9 A per-mile charge based on miles driven within Oregon by zone. Zone 1 = in state Zone 2 = out of state Optional Zone 3 = rush hour Zone 4 = local option The Concept

10 Characteristics of Collection VMT collected electronically by zone

11 Mileage Transfer VMT transmitted electronically at fueling stations VMT data transfer from vehicles when fueling Communication is short range!

12 Mileage fee imposed as part of fuel purchase Fuel tax deducted from fuel purchase price Gas to Go Commercial Rd., OR May 15, 2006 – 8:00 AM State tax disc. (3.24) Net fuel Mileage fee Total Due FLEET XXXX THANK YOU Characteristics of Collection

13 On-Vehicle Device GPS Antenna RF Antenna OBDII Port

14 Mileage Allocation Rush Hour : 50.6 In Oregon : 1,200.7 Non Oregon: No Signal : zones Vehicle Display

15 Fuel tax maintained for non- equipped vehicles Mileage fee integrates with fuel tax collection system Oregon’s weight-mile tax retained for heavy trucks Allows rush hour pricing Key Features

16 Vehicles No retrofitting Components installed during vehicle manufacture Service Stations Capital costs (Oregon): $33 million Annual operating costs (Oregon): $1.6 million Cost of Full Implementation

17 No vehicle location data stored in vehicle No data transferred except mileage totals within zones Data transferred only at time of fueling via short range radio frequency Privacy

18 1.Retrofitting cost versus long phase-in 2.Setting mileage fee rate 3.Interstate system standardization and revenue allocation 4.Integration with federal solution Policy Issues Remaining

19 Road User Fee Pilot Program March 2006-April 2007

20 Oregon’s Pilot Program Purpose: To test technology and system Time Line: June 2006 – March 2007 for Full Pilot Pre-Pilot:Preliminary control technology test √ completed Warm Up: 20-vehicle managed start at fueling stations √ completed Full Pilot: Point-of-sale system installed at fueling stations √ completed 280 vehicles pay mileage fee in lieu of gas tax  Nov ‘06 Portion of volunteers in Rush Hour Pricing  Nov ‘06

24 Wholesale Level Wholesale Distribution Industry ODOT $ Gas Tax Retail Station $ Cost of fuel + gas tax reimbursement System Integration: No change in gas tax collection

25 Non-mileage fee vehicleMileage Fee Vehicle $ Mileage Fee + fuel cost $ gas tax + fuel cost Retail Station Consumer Level System Integration: Consumers pay either gas tax or mileage fee, not both

26 ODOT Gallon & tax data If fuel taxes + mileage fees collected are less than 24 cents per gallon paid for fuel, ODOT remits the difference If total fuel taxes + mileage fees collected exceed 24 cents per gallon paid for fuel, ODOT sends a bill for the balance due Retail Station System Integration: Tax data periodically run through a “true-up” calculation by ODOT

27 Bulk of revenue stream remains at distributor level (fewer taxpayers) Mileage fee gradually becomes predominant System Integration Retain current multi-state anti-evasion processes Fuel tax retained as redundant system to guard against system failure and tampering
