Oregon Speaker to talk on Oregon’s Road Usage Charge Program
The Surrey Board of Trade will host a Leadership Surrey Dialogue focusing on Mobility Pricing as a funding mechanism for transportation and transit infrastructure. The question on how to fund transit and transportation infrastructure development and maintenance has yet to be resolved. Mobility pricing is the strategy that is currently in favour as a fair way of increasing revenue. Is it? What exactly would be included in a road tax and how would funds be distributed?
