Mileage-Fee Design Strategies to Reduce System Cost and Increase Public Acceptance

by Paul Sorensen, Liisa Ecola, Martin Wachs

In this webinar to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, Paul Sorensen and Liisa Ecola present the findings of their research on design strategies to reduce system costs and increase public acceptance of mileage-based fees.
