Autonomous and electric vehicles have the potential to improve safety, provide mobility, increase road capacity and lower emissions. But autonomous and electric vehicles pose challenges for many facets of local government administration including revenue generation. Traditional sources of transportation funding like gasoline taxes and registration fees may decline as new modes of mobility are adopted. To date, there has been limited analysis of the impacts of autonomous and electric vehicles on transportation revenues. Research at the University of Oregon has focused on how transportation funding may be affected in Gresham and Eugene, and proposed innovative funding options for filling the gap in funding. Pew Charitable Trusts focuses on state and municipal health. This panel includes researchers from University of Oregon and Pew Charitable Trusts and city staff from Gresham and Eugene. We plan to bring together researchers and city staff for a hands on presentation about how city budgets may be affected by new mobility. We will analyze issues and propose solutions.
1. In this session, participants will be able to understand how transportation technology may affect city budgets.
2. In this session, participants will be able to understand possible revenue options for a new mobility future.
3. In this session, participants will be able to understand how autonomous vehicles and new mobility affect state and municipal fiscal health.
4. In this session, participants will be able to understand how cities are working with city councils to plan for long term budgetary impacts of new mobility.
