Shared Mobility Model

Distance-Based User Fee


This research develops an incremental approach to implementing distance-based fees through the “shared mobility” model. Shared mobility is a business concept that recognizes consumer travel and vehicle ownership expectations are evolving. The ability to share vehicles is enabled by modern technologies embedded in those vehicles and that same technology gathers miles driven by each vehicle. Through partnerships with shared mobility services, states may be able to collect distance-based fees efficiently and acceptably.
