Division Activities

Motor Fuel and Finance

The Motor Fuel and Finance Division administers the collection, analysis, and dissemination of data relating motor fuels tax, driver licensing, vehicle registration, and highway finance programs. The division also administers the motor fuels tax evasion and heavy vehicle use tax programs. Motor fuels, driver licensing, vehicle registration and finance data are provided by our State partners on either a monthly, annual or biennial basis. Once compiled and analyzed, the data are used to 1) provide information and analysis in support of the Federal Highway Program's reauthorization; 2) develop proposed legislation and reports to Congress; and 3) analyze existing and proposed Federal-aid funding methods and levels.

Travel Monitoring and Surveys

The Travel Monitoring and Surveys Division administers the national traffic monitoring program, the national truck weight monitoring program, the national travel behavior program, long distance travel origin destination data, and national model program. The division also takes on the responsibility of conducting research on strategic challenging issues including, but not limited to: future travel demand, vehicle miles traveled, long distance passenger travel, energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, congestion, and revenue.

Highway System Performance

The division administers the Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) data system, and coordinates with the States on the reporting of mileage and performance data of the nation's highway system to FHWA. The data is used in the attribution of funds from the Highway Trust Fund on an annual basis. The data is the underlying data for the Conditions & Performance Report to Congress.
