Study on truck parking in Ontario needs participants

American truckers who travel through the region are encouraged to take the survey

Posted February 21, 2018

Commercial truck drivers – including U.S. operators – who travel on Southern Ontario highways are being encouraged to participate in a recent survey on truck parking.

The survey, which is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, is a part of the broader Southern Ontario Rest Area Study. The study will be used to identify:

  • Gaps in available parking for truckers while travelling through Southern Ontario, and
  • Impacts of the shortage on the driver and his or her work.

Want to take the survey?

The survey takes approximately 12 to 15 minutes and focuses on the highways used most by the participant. The online survey is available through April 30, 2018.

The results of the study will assist in determining where truck parking is needed and what amenities are missing at truck stops, such as washrooms, showers, and 24/7 availability.
