Revenue Options Study
Illinois Department of Transportation
R.M. Chin & Associates, Inc. (CHIN) serves as the subconsultant managing stakeholder outreach for the Illinois Department of Transportation’s (IDOT) Revenue Options Study. This state-wide study will estimate the revenue impact analyses of the increasing adoption of Electric Vehicles (EV) and more fuel-efficient vehicles, conduct a planning-level quantitative and qualitative analysis of alternatives to motor fuel taxes, and assess stakeholder sentiments. After screening a comprehensive list of possibilities, a financial analysis tool will be developed to assess the revenue implications of a narrower list of promising revenue alternatives. The assessment of alternatives will also consider factors such as administrative feasibility, cost of collection, equity along several dimensions, and long-term sustainability.
