Loading WA RUC

THE PATH
TO THE PILOT


In 2012, the Legislature directed the Washington State Transportation Commission (WSTC) to work with a steering committee to assess a road usage charge as a possible replacement for the gas tax. After several years of study, the Steering Committee and the WSTC have determined that a road usage charge is feasible and could produce the needed revenue to fund Washington State’s long-term transportation needs.
 

In fall 2017, the WSTC will launch a year-long pilot project to let participants “test-drive” a per-mile charge system. We want your help to shape our future system! Up to 2,000 volunteers will have an early opportunity to tell us what they think and influence how a road usage charge might move forward in Washington.

QUESTIONS WE WANT TO ANSWER
  • Does a RUC make sense for Washington long-term?
  • How does it work for drivers?
  • Will it enable us to better fund our transportation system into the future?

STEERING COMMITTEE


At the direction of the Washington State Legislature, the Washington State Transportation Commission (WSTC) and a Steering Committee have been evaluating a potential replacement for the gas tax since 2012. The 25-member Steering Committee includes representatives from:

  • Washington State House of Representatives
  • Washington State Senate
  • Puget Sound Regional Council
  • Washington State Department of Transportation
  • Washington State Department of Licensing
  • The Office of State Treasurer
  • Counties and cities
  • Motoring public
  • Auto industry
  • Business
  • Ports
  • Public transportation
  • Environmental interests
  • Trucking Industry
  • Consumer groups
  • User fee technology

GET INVOLVED

  • We will recruit up to 2,000 volunteer drivers to participate in our statewide pilot project. We are also looking for drivers from Surrey, British Columbia and Oregon to help test how a per-mile system works when traveling between Washington and Canada or Oregon. The planned start date is fall 2017.
