Take It For A Test Drive

Help us understand if a road usage charge will work for Washington! We need at least 2,000 drivers from throughout Washington to participate in our 12-month long pilot starting in early 2018. As a pilot participant, you’ll be able to provide valuable feedback on your experience and help answer questions like:

  • How does a road usage charge work for different drivers throughout the state?
  • How do the reporting methods work for drivers?
  • Will a road usage charge enable us to better fund our transportation system in the future?
