Trucker Path App Helps Drivers Find Parking Spots Nationwide

Trucker Path has launched a new feature that enables truck drivers to see parking availability in locations across the country.

“By using the Trucker Path app, truckers can not only locate parking in their vicinity, but also determine, in many cases, whether those parking spaces are available,” said Ivan Tsybaev, CEO of Trucker Path. “Finding parking will become far less stressful for drivers since they will be able to find opportunities faster and easier using Trucker Path’s unique crowd-sourcing capabilities.”

The standard Trucker Path application is free and available on Android or iOS-based smartphones and tablets. It provides drivers a trip planner to plan a route and check detailed information about truck-friendly points-of-interest along the way. This includes hotels or motels, weigh stations, truck stops, truck washes, restaurants and rest areas. Drivers can read what their peers say about the locations and how they rate them. All of the information on Trucker Path is constantly verified and updated by Trucker Path’s community of truckers to ensure its accuracy.

“The app’s new parking feature will save truckers and trucking companies a tremendous amount of time, money and inconvenience,” Tsybaev said. “Our goal is to make truckers’ lives easier with technology, and this truck parking load status feature is another step towards that.”

Trucker Path has become a popular peer-to-peer application among drivers. It is on the top 10 list of Android applications for transportation with an average 4.5-star rating out of five stars. It also rates a full 5-star rating on the Apple App store, according to Tsybaev.

All the information on Trucker Path is constantly verified and updated by Trucker Path’s community of truckers to ensure its accuracy. The app also features extensive driver reviews so truckers can find stops that their peers believe meet their needs.
