TravelCenters of America launched a new round of updates to its TruckSmart app.

“Our goal was to update the TruckSmart app so it works better, harder and smarter for the driver,” Barry Richards, president of TravelCenters, said in a release. “We want the app to be a tool to help drivers save time while they are on the road. Whether it’s reserving parking, entering the queue for truck service or a shower or accessing real-time location updates, TruckSmart ensures drivers can arrive at a TA, Petro or TA Express location with confidence knowing their time is well spent and they will get the service they need.”

This app update is the first of several in a series of planned updates resulting from driver feedback and aimed at continuing to improve features and add a more significant time management tool for professional drivers, according to the Westlake, Ohio-based company.

It is available through the App Store for Apple phones with iOS and Google Play for Android.

TravelCenters of America conducts business in 43 states and Canada, principally under the TA, Petro Stopping Centers and TA Express travel center brands. — Transport Topics
