Road Usage Charge History & Technical Information

The Utah Legislature is working to ensure that transportation funding mechanisms are ready and in place to meet future demands and keep Utah moving. Drivers of electric and hybrid vehicles pay a flat fee during their annual registration to compensate for not paying as much fuel tax as drivers of conventional vehicles. These fees pay for operations and maintenance of Utah’s transportation system.

As of 2020, electric and hybrid vehicle owners have an option to pay a road usage charge in lieu of their annual alternative fuel vehicle fee. In future years, the Road Usage Charge program could also be a potential replacement to the fuel tax for all vehicles in Utah. UDOT is involved in this effort in order to Keep Utah Moving by making sure future funding will be available to build and maintain our transportation system.
