The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued final guidance to implement the tolling/HOV equity provisions of the FAST Act (2015) related to the treatment of over-the-road buses when compared to transit vehicles.
All tolling facilities within the covered programs outlined by the FAST Act must charge public transits and privately operated over-the-road buses the same amounts. If transits are exempt from tolls, then private motorcoach providers must also be exempt from the same tolls.

ABA is exploring additional action to facilitate the enforcement of the requirements as well as refunds of improperly collected tolls. Initially, ABA will hold a conference call on March 28, 2018, to discuss operations in Massachusetts related to identified toll facilities there.
To access the call please dial: (800) 220-9875 [US Toll Free];
