How should we finance transportation infrastructure? While many states are experimenting with Road Usage Charging and California passed a gas tax increase in 2017 (SB1), we will need more funding to keep the nation’s infrastructure safe and operational, and address the needs of other modes such as rail, air, and maritime. Furthermore, emerging technologies, such as automated vehicles, need to be integrated into this infrastructure—requiring policy and rights-of-way changes. This panel will explore the challenges and opportunities to financing transportation infrastructure and preparing for the future, including a range of perspectives—federal, state, and local.
