A leading transportation research organization wants to know what you think about the availability of truck parking.

Researchers want to know what you think

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) collected over 800 driver surveys on the topic of truck parking at last week’s Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville.

Drivers who did not attend MATS can still provide input on truck parking.  ATRI’s survey is now available to drivers online through its website at  ATRI will collect driver responses on the truck parking survey through the end of April.

ATRI’s latest survey cross-references driver perceptions of truck parking availability with the viability of truck parking reservation systems and exactly how truck drivers put a “value” on truck parking availability.

This latest ATRI data collection initiative was driven by the selection of truck parking as one of the top priority research topics for 2015 by ATRI’s Research Advisory Committee (RAC).  Additionally, truck parking continues to rank high in ATRI’s annual Top Industry Issues Survey; in the 2014 survey Truck Parking ranked sixth overall but among truck drivers in the survey it ranked second, eclipsed only by the challenges associated with the hours-of-service regulations.
