The American Transportation Research Institute has launched an online survey to gather driver input on preferences for data formats and delivery mechanisms of truck parking availability information.
The data collection is part of ATRI’s 2019 top priority research topic to standardize truck parking information systems based on driver preferences.
ATRI already surveyed over 300 drivers on the topic at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky. The new online survey will allow drivers who were not able to attend MATS to provide input on the topic.
The lack of available truck parking continues to rank as a top industry issue in ATRI’s annual industry survey. It was the number two issue for drivers in 2018, following only the hours-of-service rules.
ATRI’s research findings will provide states and private sector entities providing truck parking information with the driver-preferred data formats and methods of information delivery.
