Truck parking coalition seeks examples of good parking solutions from drivers
March 16, 2018
Tackling the parking problem within the trucking industry, the National Coalition on Truck Parking, organized by the Federal Highway Administration, is asking truck industry stakeholders, particularly drivers, for some good examples of truck parking beyond truck stops and rest areas.
To better understand real-world solutions to the widespread truck parking issue, the National Coalition on Truck Parking wants truckers to tell them about experiences with truck parking best practices.
- The coalition is looking for the following:
- Examples of shippers/receivers allowing parking at their sites;
- Creative uses of the right-of-way for low-cost parking;
- Parking in state and metropolitan planning organization freight plans;
- States’ parking information systems, message signs, 511 and other technologies;
- Successful truck parking public-private partnerships; and
- Examples of local zoning or development plans for industrial areas that include parking/staging requirements.
The coalition is open to other examples that exhibit positive parking solutions beyond the standard rest areas and truck stops.
The National Coalition on Truck Parking will take submissions through Friday, March 23.
