Beginning in 2018 and over the course of 6 years, an investigative project gathered community
feedback and input from the participation of community residents, industry stakeholders,
legislators and government planners. The road usage charge (RUC) was found to be the most
accepted and fair way to fund the maintenance of roads and bridges. To begin the transition,
Hawaii will start with applying the RUC to electric vehicles only starting July 1, 2025.
With the project demonstration phases completed, the Final Project report, a culmination of the past three years of work, is now available.
Outreach, Participation, Feedback were carried out to understand the unique circumstances and perspectives of Hawaii’s different communities.
