An efficient and forward-looking transportation system is critical for the economic vitality of the state and the region. Financing the system, however, is an ongoing challenge. Major studies and initiatives indicate that current revenues will not be adequate to maximize transportation's benefits to Minnesota's economy.

TPEC work in this area:

  • Identifies and examines revenue streams and finance alternatives to meet capital and maintenance costs.
  • Provides finance data and decision-making tools for policymakers.
