Your View on Tolls

May 4, 2017

With the ongoing discussions regarding the state budget deficit, I’d like to hear your feedback regarding revenues from tolls. I hope you'll take a look at the data and information below and answer a brief poll at the bottom.

Revenues from Tolls

CT vs. Neighboring States

A few points to consider:

  • Tolls are no longer the archaic toll booth structure of the past. They are an electronic overhang.
  • CT residents would have to pay a fee as well, albeit discounted.
  • The revenue would offset what we currently allocate in taxes towards transportation/road and bridges repair.
  • Fees from tolls are one of the few ways to capture revenue from out-of state travelers and commercial vehicles.
