Tolling is Becoming “A Part of Everyday Life” as Gas Tax Revenue Dwindles

“GOVERNING” Magazine reports, “As traditional sources of transportation revenue, like gas taxes, have declined, tolling has increasingly become a part of everyday life for many Americans. The miles of managed lanes with tolls on them has quadrupled since 2010. The number of drivers using toll facilities increased by 7 percent in just a single year, from 2014 to 2015. That growth could continue if lawmakers in places like Connecticut or Wisconsin move ahead this year with long-stalled plans to introduce tolling in their states.” The report focuses on Indiana State Representative Ed Soliday’s push to add toll revenue to the state’s transportation budget.
