Mahalo to everyone who attended HiRUC community meetings in March, April, and May! We appreciate your time, feedback and and continuing interest. HDOT and the HiRUC project team learned important perspectives from the residents who attended and generously shared their time and thoughts.
Frequent topics included:
- Concerns about the impact of a road usage charge on rural residents and long-distance commuters
- Suggestions to raise more road funds from visitors
- Doubts whether a road usage charge would replace the gas tax
- Questions about how a road usage charge would work
Click below to read more about all of these and more.
For more information, view the slide presentations from HiRUC community meetings. The community meetings were only the start. Many opportunities to provide feedback remain, including surveys and test driver volunteer opportunities. Please join the e-newsletter to stay informed, and send your comments anytime.
