Two New Truck Parking Studies from ATRI

- In a February 27 press release, the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) announced the completion of two new truck parking studies.

Performed in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration, the studies examine new approaches for identifying truck parking capacity.

The first study assessed truck parking supply and demand at different times of the week by cross-referencing GPS data to calculate truck activity at four Minnesota rest areas.

The second study is a report discussing a field test run by the University of Minnesota and ATRI that delivered real-time truck parking information to commercial drivers through three systems: 1) Roadside Changeable Message Signs (CMS); 2) a web portal; 3) in-cab communication systems.
