Road User Fee Task Force

The Oregon Legislature created the Road User Fee Task Force in 2001 to investigate options for generating sustainable funding for Oregon's transportation system. The group directed two pilot projects in 2006 and 2012 that tested per-mile charging.
 
The Task Force is now focused on OReGO, the nation's first fully-operational road usage charge program that launched July 1, 2015. OReGO is demonstrating a new way to fund road maintenance, preservation and improvements. OReGO volunteers pay a per-mile charge for the miles they drive and receive a credit for fuels tax paid at the pump. Learn more at MyOReGO.org.
