​Alternative Funding: Planning and Environmental Linkages Study

Click to view PDF version of the PEL Study Final Report.

PennDOT conducted its Alternative Funding Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study to identify possible near-term and long-term solutions to the funding gap our transportation system faces. The PEL Study evaluated the feasibility of various funding options for near- and long-term implementation and established a methodology for evaluating environmental justice effects associated with each. The study will serve as a guide as PennDOT pursues and implements alternative funding strategies to help support our entire transportation system. The findings of the PEL Study will help guide the implementation of future funding strategies and can be modified as needs evolve.

Below are two versions of the PEL Study final report. The PDF version is a full-color version of the document that includes graphic illustrations. It contains active links to additional information and details that further explain specific content in the document.

The text-only version contains the same content as the PDF, but excludes some graphical elements to allow for easier language translation and use of other accessible technology applications. It also does not include the appendices.
