ATRI releases truck parking survey

Indicates interest in reserved parking, unwillingness to pay for it

Posted September 23, 2015

On September 21, 2015, the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) released results from its survey of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) truck drivers on parking issues. The survey, titled Commercial Driver Perspectives on Truck Parking, asked questions from more than 1,400 participants on private and public rest stops, and reserved truck parking.

ATRI’s analysis of the survey found that reservation parking systems near large urban areas would have the most value to CMV drivers, although nearly half of them would not want to pay for reserved parking, indicating a discrepancy between the appeal of reserved parking to CMV drivers and their willingness to pay for it.

CMV parking was designated as a priority issue for 2015 by the ATRI Research Advisory Committee. ATRI said it will continue to research this issue
