IBTTA collaborates with many partner organizations to serve our members and address concerns with a much broader perspective on the issues facing our industry. Learn more about IBTTA's partners from around the world.

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. Learn more »

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. For more information on the signing and declaration, please see the following links.

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) provides innovative, research-based solutions to improve transportation. TRB is a unit of the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, a non-profit organization that provides independent, objective, and interdisciplinary solutions. TRB manages transportation research by producing publications and online resources. It convenes experts that help to develop solutions to problems and issues facing transportation professionals. TRB also provides advice through its policy studies that tackle complex and often controversial issues of national significance.

IBTTA actively engages with two transportation committees within TRB.

TRB Committee on Managed Lanes (AHB35)
Co-Chairs: Casey Emoto and Chuck Fuhs

This Committee is concerned with the evolving role of high-occupancy vehicle, high-occupancy toll and managed lanes in response to the challenges of congestion, energy consumption and climate change. The Committee examines methods for enhancing person throughput, energy conservation, air quality and user choices and safety through the optimization of preferential lanes, priority treatments and other supporting systems for bus transit, carpooling and vanpooling. The Committee’s activities focus on the planning, design, operation, pricing and evaluation of preferential lane facilities and on the development, validation and dissemination of theoretical, experimental and applied research related to preferential lanes.

TRB Committee on Congestion Pricing (ABE25)
Chair: Richard “Trey” Baker

The Committee fosters research aimed to gain a better understanding of the technological, operational, business, administrative, political and institutional aspects of innovative congestion pricing of systems and services for all modes of transportation. Strategies include integrated transit, variable aviation pricing, parking pricing, parking “cash-out” and other mechanisms that seek to affect transportation demand and use. The Committee seeks to develop a comprehensive understanding of the effects of congestion pricing on the transportation system, in addressing passenger and freight mobility, transit and highway interdependence and interoperability of systems.
