​To provide state departments of transportation and other interested parties insights into road user charges (RUC) and how to create a user-based alternative revenue mechanism for surface transportation funding, the BATIC Institute is holding a webinar on May 14 to highlight the collaboration, leadership, and public education states have successfully employed to date to execute RUC pilot programs.

Angela Jacobs, the Federal Highway Administration's program manager for the agency's surface transportation system funding alternative grants initiative, will also be on hand to provide an update on that program's current status and activities.

The webinar is free and will be available on the BATIC Institute's website at http://financingtransportation.org/ typically within 24 hours.
