Fitch Expects Toll Revenues to Grow Faster Than Traffic

Fitch Ratings released its latest US Transportation Trends special report, which concludes, “Southeast and Southwest [toll facilities] should continue to lead in traffic performance similar to 2016 thanks to moderate economic and population growth.” Director Tanya Langman adds in Fitch’s news release, “Toll road revenues are positioned to grow faster than traffic as many authorities implement policies of inflationary toll increases.” Overall, the report anticipates “healthy growth” in all major US transportation segments, “despite longer-term questions brought on by shifting economic, trade and fiscal policies.”
