National Coalition on Truck Parking
The Coalition was formed to respond to needs identified in a truck parking survey conducted by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) as part of Section 1401, also known as “Jason’s Law,” a provision in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21; P.L. 112-141) Act, enacted on July 6, 2012. The Jason’s Law Truck Parking Survey Results and comparative Analysis (Analysis) of August 2015 documents those findings. The USDOT and its partners are committed to raising the level of dialogue, coordination, and response of the public and private sectors to this area of freight operations and safety.
The Coalition held a kickoff meeting at the USDOT in November 2015. At this meeting, the Coalition committed to convening four meetings around the country to get input from key stakeholders on creative and innovative approaches to solve the nation's truck parking problem.
The National Coalition on Truck Parking Activity Report, 2015-2016 (Report) documents the first year of Coalition activities and synthesizes suggestions from participants to address truck parking problems across the Nation.
