Abstract or Summary
  • This study evaluates the distributional impacts of an alternative public roads finance method, a road usage charge (RUC) fee, on lower income households and rural households in Oregon. While previous research has relied on the 2001 and 2009 National Household Travel Survey (NHTS), this research will uses the 2011-2013 Oregon Household Activity Survey (OHAS) data. The OHAS dataset is used to assess the impact of changing from a 30 cents per gallon fuel tax to the 1.5 cents per mile RUC as proposed in SB 801, and to examine regional differences in driving behaviors that may be relevant in further assessing the impacts of a change in policy. Results show that overall the RUC will be slightly more regressive than the fuel tax, but that impacts may vary due to regional differences in the determinants of vehicle miles traveled (VMT).
