Road User Fee Task Force

About the Task Force

oregonoutofmud.gifThe Oregon Legislature created the Road User Fee Task Force (RUFTF) in 2001 to investigate options for generating sustainable funding for Oregon's transportation system. The group spearheaded two pilot projects in 2006 and 2012 that tested per-mile charging. 
The focus now is on OReGO, the nation's first fully-operational road usage charge program that launched July 1, 2015, demonstrating a new way to fund road maintenance, preservation and improvements. OReGO volunteers receive a fuels tax credit and instead pay a per-mile charge for the miles they drive.
  • The OReGO rate is 1.5 cents per mile
  • OReGO volunteers get a full credit for fuel tax they pay at the pump
  • Volunteers can choose from several private and secure mileage reporting options offered by OReGO’s private-sector partners
