Project 16.4
Truck Parking Information Management Assessment

Long haul truck drivers rely on overnight truck parking facilities to take their mandated rest breaks in compliance with federal hour of service regulations. There is a shortage of truck parking spaces nationwide. As a result, drivers may resort to parking in undesignated and unsafe locations to take their mandated breaks.

Truck parking information management systems use sensors to track available spaces at truck parking facilities. Sharing information on available capacity and utilization at truck parking facilities can help truck drivers plan their trips. This project will review existing truck parking information sharing systems region-wide and helps make recommendations to support a systematic region-wide approach to truck parking information sharing and information management.
