Road Charge Projects

Communications Research

The findings from the 2017 pilot recommended further research on the impacts of a road charge on disadvantaged communities. Caltrans contracted with the Foundation for California Community Colleges to research potential impacts of a road charge program on low-income individuals, specifically to measure awareness of transportation funding in California, gauge perceptions of and reaction to a potential road charge, and identify privacy concerns related to how information may be gathered as part of a road charge implementation.
