A transportation utility fee (TUF), also known as a street maintenance fee, road user fee, or street utility fee, is an important tool for funding the repair and maintain for the preservation of streets, upgrade sidewalks and add or improve pedestrian safety features and curbs, as well as comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

FHWA has recently published a TUF Primer that provides information for State departments of transportation and local public agencies to consider implementing a TUF. The primer provides practical information on what TUFs are and examples of how municipalities are using them. It also provides points for consideration when thinking about instituting a TUFs program, such as the favorability of the legal and regulatory environment for TUFs, as well as whether and how TUFs can be used for financing. The primer offers examples detailing several ongoing TUFs programs in Texas, Utah, and Oregon.
