A two-day conference on tolling and road pricing across the USA 

Taking place on the 13th and 14th June in Miami, the Road User Charging Conference USA is a brand-new in-person event that will highlight the latest tolling technologies, road pricing projects and intelligent transport systems being implemented across the USA.

The two-day event will see expert speakers discuss how traffic is regulated and revenues generated on highways, freeways and express lanes, as well as on turnpikes in and out of the USA's most congested cities, from New York to Los Angeles.

Road user charging schemes covering distance-based charging, congestion charging, all-electronic tolling, heavy-vehicle tolling, and automated enforcement will all be presented via case studies and panel discussions.

Attendees will include US-based toll road operators, toll service providers, toll chargers, systems integrators, automotive manufacturers and suppliers, municipal councils, transportation and highways authorities, state and federal government, mobile telecom operators, telematics solutions providers, consultancies, device and equipment suppliers, technology companies and mobility service providers.

    • US states have historically relied on local gasoline taxes to sustain their transportation funds. However, increasing fuel-efficiency and uptake of electric vehicles has led to a significant decline in gas tax revenue
    • To supplement depleting revenue sources, state and federal government must consider alternative solutions
    • How tolling and road pricing programs are an equitable and sustainable means of transportation funding and finance
    • RUC Americas
    • How will Los Angeles impose congestion pricing
    • How will this change the public perception of congestion pricing?
    • Will this reduce congestion in the city?
    • RUC Americas
    • Government are looking at how to invest in new congestion toll lanes to go on many highway areas
    • Consider how to reduce climate warming pollution by reducing car commuters and to travel by transit trips
    • Look how to drastically transform travel by 2020
    • RUC Americas
    • Looking at ways to implement congestion pricing on express lanes
    • How to lower greenhouse gas emissions?
    • Will express lanes be a stepping-stone to more extensive congestion pricing strategies?

    • Construction value is at $180 million, with a total project cost of $277 million
    • The new toll way project will have two tolled lanes in each direction an option to widen to three lanes in the future
    • How will this affect the population and planned transportation improvements
    • Daily use of the new tolled lanes will have grown by triple by 2030.

    • The US$2tn infrastructure bill allows for an expanded program for state pilots in the nation and begins a very extensive and robust national pilot
    • How far will this legislation move the United States?  
    • How quickly will the US pivot to a new system of financing all surface infrastructure in the nation?  
    • Will the movements in the USA lead other nations to similar efforts?

    • RUC is at an inflection point in the USA. Several states have begun a slow rollout of RUC programs - no longer trials
    • Meanwhile several other states are beginning new trials building on and expanding upon earlier trials. And the federal government is now considering a national trial.
    • Many feel the glidepath to widespread use of RUC is finally being established, but there are still potential roadblocks to navigate...

    • Technological advancements are poised to dramatically change the way motorists travel and pay for their use of roadways and transportation systems in the next few years
    • How the tolling industry thrives will depend on how well it can collectively harness all the data that’s being generated by vehicles and their drivers, and use it to create new value for motorists and travelers on the roadways
    • Why the tolling industry must make better use of all the technology that’s already in today’s vehicles – collecting data and using it to better plan and manage transportation systems and assets to create a better mobility experience
    • RUC Americas
    • Tolling in the 21st century is rapidly evolving with innovative roadside technology providing for electronic toll collection and open road tolling
    • Insight into how connected vehicle technology advancements will soon allow cars to make payments through cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology
    • How mobile tolling apps are providing new innovative ways for travelers to pay tolls

    • How do commercial trucks fare in a distance-based fee system? The answer: It’s complicated. Learn why in this presentation, which will share new insights from the nation’s first multi-state mileage-based user fee truck pilot
    • Conducted by The Eastern Transportation Coalition, the pilot examined the feasibility of using existing regulations, administrative processes, and technology as a potential framework for a mileage-based fee transportation funding approach
    • This presentation will review five key findings from the truck pilot, how industry feedback is being reflected in rate-setting and other pilot aspects, and early data from the Coalition’s current national truck pilot that is even more expansive than the first.
