    The Oregon Innovative Partnerships Program (OIPP) was created by the Oregon Legislature to develop partnerships with private entities and units of government in order to make the most of public dollars whenever possible.

    Since 2004, OIPP staff members have worked with the private sector on a variety of projects, including placing solar arrays near highways, developing electric vehicle infrastructure, exploring road funding alternatives, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and more.

    With our partners, the opportunities are endless. Enjoy perusing our website and learning about our projects, and thanks for visiting!

Innovative Partnerships Oregon's Road Usage Charge Program
OReGO has launched!
Sign up at MyOReGO.org
Oregon is exploring a new funding system—a road usage charge—to provide more equitable funding for our public roadways. After two pilot projects in 2007 and 2012, the state legislature voted Senate Bill 810 into law on July 9, 2013. Oregon is now conducting a 5,000 vehicle volunteer program which implements a per-mile charge as an alternative to the gas tax.
The Oregon Department of Transportation invites you to review a website introducing OReGO, our new road usage charge program. The website will serve as a comprehensive resource for Oregonians looking to learn more about the program and what it means for the future of our state’s transportation system. The OReGO website includes:
·  A history of road usage charging in Oregon
·  Information on the scope of Senate Bill 810 including a full overview of the new program launching on July 1, 2015
·  Details on what it means to become an OReGo participant, including qualifications and account management options
·  A calculator to compare current fuels tax payment verses road usage charge payment
·  Profiles from volunteer participants 
·  FAQs, media stories, and much, much more!
