The International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association’s (IBTTA)Transportation Finance and Mileage-Based User Fee Symposium met in Philadelphia, PA recently. The organization is the worldwide association representing toll facility owners, operators and the businesses that serve them.

During the conference, as part of its national Moving America Forward campaign, the organization released a video designed to “help educate the public, policymakers and the media about the critical role tolling plays in meeting our country’s infrastructure funding challenges.” It features both IBTTA executive director and CEO, Patrick Jones, and IBTTA board president, Rob Horr.

As our nation’s transportation and infrastructure system continues to put a strain on federal and state budgets, funding options like mileage-based user fees must be considered,”said Jones.“State and local governments should have the flexibility to fund and finance America’s transportation system in the ways that are most appropriate for them.”
