In this resource paper, brief summaries are given of alternative sources of transportation revenues that could be phased in over a period of time to replace revenues lost as the current method of tax revenues based on motor and diesel fuel decline or become obsolete. The fees are identified either as vehicle-related or as non-vehicle-related revenue sources. The vehicle-related revenue sources include tolls, value pricing, licensing, vehicle miles of travel fees, weight-distance fees, vehicle and parts sales fees, vehicle property fees, alternative-fuel taxes, vehicle use fees, emission fees, and carbon or Btu taxes or ad valorem taxes on fuels and value-added fees on vehicles and vehicle parts. The non-vehicle-related revenue sources include leasing of airspace and right-of-way, public-private partnerships, private transporttion facilities and privatization of rest area and road brandning.
