Abstract This report provides state departments of transportation (DOTs) and other transportation agencies that are considering instituting or modifying user-based fees or tolling on segments of their system with a decision-making framework and analytical tools that better describe likely impacts on revenue generation and system performance. This report is presented in two volumes. Volume 1: Decision-Making Framework should be of immediate use to staff responsible for structuring the policy-level evaluation of potential tolling and pricing solutions to examine their policy implications, performance expectations, and financial impacts. Volume 2: Travel Demand Forecasting Tools will provide staff who develop the forecasts of potential revenue, transportation demand, and congestion and system performance with an in-depth examination of the various analytical tools available for direct or adapted use.
