A new parking for truck drivers is available from the folks who created what they call the “largest free parking app for truckers in Europe.”

Truck Parking USA is free and available for both iOS and Android devices. Based on Truck Parking Europe, it relies on truck driver input and includes:

  • Parking In My Area
  • Driving Mode
  • Rate & Review Parking Spots
  • Friends Finder to determine where friends are parking

“With 3.5 million American truckers on the road today, it should come as no surprise that finding safe parking for them all is strain on state departments of transportation,” said Niels de Zwaan, director of Truck Parking USA. “These truckers are the backbone of the American economy and as such deserve a voice and advocate for their safety.”

First launched in 2013, Truck Parking Europe has a database that includes more than 18,000 truck parking spaces from Ireland to Ukraine, with a total of more than 220,000 parking options for European truckers.
