Smarter, safer truck parking decisions are coming!
Safe, convenient parking is essential for long-haul truck drivers, the lifeblood of our freight transportation network. Yet drivers often struggle for up to an hour each day to find areas to safely rest. That’s why eight states – Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin – have joined together in developing a real-time, multi-state Truck Parking Information Management System. This TPIMS project will improve the safety and efficiency of America’s freight network by providing real-time parking availability information to truck drivers through dynamic message signs, smart phone applications and traveler information websites.
