Sponsored by Committee on Transportation Economics (ABE20)
In an effort to keep revenues in line with expenses many agencies are supplementing traditional revenue sources with nontraditional revenues. This practice will shift the cost burden of the transportation system and may have unintended impacts. This session examines four financing methods and how these new techniques may alter cost responsibilities, usage, and welfare implications of the transportation system.
