Disruptive Technologies: Impacts on Transportation Revenues

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 1:30 PM-4:30 PM, Convention Center 2018
Nathan Macek, WSP, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Revenue and Finance; Standing Committee on Transportation Issues in Major Cities; Standing Committee on Transportation Demand Management; Standing Committee on Social and Economic Factors of Transportation; Standing Committee on Emerging and Innovative Public Transport and Technologies; Standing Committee on Public Transportation Planning and Development; and Standing Committee on Light Rail Transit

This workshop examines the revenue impacts of technologies, such as connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) and ridesharing services. As these technologies change the way people travel, they are displacing traditional revenue streams for transportation programs. Expert panels, interactive polling, and breakout roundtable discussions address the current and anticipated impact of these emerging mobility technologies on transit fare revenue, parking revenue, traffic and parking fines, managed lane and toll revenues, retail sales taxes, license fees, and registration fees. The session will consider impacts on airports, goods movement, land use and development, and equity considerations. The workshop is intended to identify high priority research topics.
