The Trucker Path mobile app for commercial truck drivers uses more than a million in-app ratings, reviews and driver feedback to determine the top chain and independent truck stops in the North America.

This year, Bert’s Travel Plaza in Wellsville, Kansas, was voted best independent truck stop, and Pilot Travel Center #1 in Mill Hall, Pennsylvania, was voted best chain truck stop.

Top 5 Independent Truck Stops

  1. Bert's Travel Plaza, Wellsville, Kansas
  2. Big Apple Travel Center, Joplin, Missouri
  3. Boise Stage Stop, Boise, Idaho
  4. Russell's Endee Truck and Travel Center, Glenrio, New Mexico
  5. Truck World Truck Stop, Hubbard. Ohio

“When I found out we’d won I was shocked because our store just opened on May 1, 2020,” said Kim Jackson, general manager of Bert's Travel Plaza in Wellsville, Kansas. “But we’ve worked so hard to make it a great place. Being family owned, especially having owners that also operate a trucking company, really helps. They put all their trucker knowledge into our facility. The owner really wanted a place for drivers so it was built for the drivers. There’s lots of concrete, bigger spots for driver comfort and a secu-rity guard at night to help drivers.  We also have  free parking, a wash bay, and we have a 24-hour cleaning crew for clean showers and restrooms. I am very thankful for a great staff that also cares about  the drivers. At the end of the day, I’m very proud to show my kids that hard work really pays off.”

Top 5 Chain Truck Stops

  1. Pilot Travel Center #1, Mill Hall Pennsylvania
  2. Love's Travel Stop #812, Bliss, Idaho
  3. Rocky Mountain Truck Centers of Little America, Green River, Wyoming
  4. TA Oakley #91, Oakley, Kansas
  5. Love's Travel Stop #814, Hamilton, Alabama

The Top 5 lists are then created through voting on those locations by Trucker Path app users. Each Best Truck Stops facility receives a window decal honoring the location.

“Truck stop ratings by drivers reflect the locations that offer the best parking, food and a range of other amenities,” Trucker Path Chief Marketing Officer Chris Oliver said. “Recognition by drivers means these facilities are the right place to stop based on their features and customer service. This year’s winners are what drivers tell us are the best chain and independent truck stops from among the more than 6,000 locations in the Trucker Path app.”
