For Immediate Release
Effort spans 4 years, includes policy development and pilot implementation.
Reston, VA — April 24, 2015 — D’Artagnan Consulting has been awarded a contract with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) as the State of California seeks to implement one of the nation’s most ambitious per-mile road charging study and pilot efforts to date. Senate Bill 1077, signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown in 2014, directed a study to implement, evaluate, and report back to lawmakers on a pilot test of road charging methods before June 30, 2018. D’Artagnan is providing direct support to Caltrans to achieve the objectives of the legislation. In the initial phase, D’Artagnan and Caltrans will work with the California Transportation Commission in support of the Road Charge Technical Advisory Committee, a task force that will recommend pilot program design and evaluation criteria. In future years, D’Artagnan and Caltrans will work closely to implement the recommendations of the task force and fulfill other legislative objectives.
In the first phase of this effort, D’Artagnan is working with partners Lucas Public Affairs of Sacramento, CA; DHM Research of Portland, OR; and PRR of Seattle, WA.
