IBTTA Strategic Partners
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and IBTTA have pledged to work together to advance public policies that allow states to use toll financing, wherever they may choose, including on the interstate highways where U.S. federal law has traditionally banned the use of tolls. AASHTO is the association that represents all state departments of transportation in the U.S. 2011 IBTTA President Frank McCartney signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on behalf of IBTTA during AASHTO’s annual meeting in Detroit on October 17, 2011. AASHTO President Susan Martinovich signed the MOU on behalf of AASHTO.
IBTTA took a major step toward “going global” in 2004 when we joined with ASECAP — the European Association of Tolled Motorway, Bridge and Tunnel Concessionaires — and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two organizations. Our first cooperative venture under this agreement took place in 2005 when we held the International Transportation Finance Summit in Nice, France.
On May 27, 2013, in Dubrovnik, Croatia, IBTTA and ASECAP again joined together in signing a Joint Tolling Declaration. Through this strategic alliance, IBTTA and ASECAP aim to raise the visibility and the state of the art of tolling around the world.
