Road User Charging: The Physics, Philosophies and Economics of Roads

Opting for road user charging is more than just solving a cash-flow problem. It assumes that user pays is the proper methodology for raising road funding revenue, matching the charges imposed in some way to the costs of providing roads designed to perform at some acceptable level of service. But this really depends on what a society thinks a road is, the purposes roads should serve, and for whom.

This webinar poses questions that need to be answered to know to what extent RUC might fit your road funding system, and where further alignment may need to be created.
