Michigan residents are being asking if the state should change the gas tax for a road usage charge.

LANSING - The Michigan Department of Transportation is asking for the public's input.....Should Michigan change or get rid of the gas tax? 

Now through March 1, Michigan residents can weigh in on the way we pay for roads, bridges and other transportation infrastructure. They want to get a better understanding of residents' attitudes toward a potential replacement to the state gas tax.  Electric vehicle drivers would be taxed if road usage charges were implemented.  

The survey is being conducted by MDOT in partnership with Via Transportation, Inc.

No changes are currently being debated at the legislature at this time.   A statewide survey would be the first step in exploring new funding options. .

 

One possible funding tool is road usage charges, which means drivers would pay a few cents for each mile driven instead of paying based on how much gas they buy.

You must be 18 or older to respond to the survey and you will be eligible for a $10 gift card.                                                                                          People can access the survey at www.Michigan.gov/MIRoadCharge.
