TxDOT’s Travel Division develops and distributes Texas Highways magazine, the state’s official monthly travel publication. In the past, the department provided employees and retirees with printed issues of Texas Highways. Each printed issue cost 90 cents to print and distribute, resulting in processing costs of approximately $239,000 per year.
In February 2013, TxDOT began providing employees and retirees with digital issues of Texas Highways. Each digital issue costs only 25 cents to distribute.
TxDOT will save $197,000 annually through digital distribution of Texas Highways to employees and retirees. In addition to the cost savings, the distribution of digital issues better aligns the Texas Highways program with TxDOT's sustainability goals.
