Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration

Please join the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) on December 1, 2020 for a virtual meeting of the National Coalition on Truck Parking (Coalition). At this 5th meeting of the Coalition, participants will hear about current truck parking initiatives, including an overview of planning, research and investment resources, and a presentation from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) on the 2019 Jason's Law Survey results.

This virtual meeting is free to attend and open to all. Please register prior to the event by visiting: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/national-coalition-on-truck-parking-virtual-meeting-tickets-126278178431

Please check the National Coalition on Truck Parking website in the coming weeks for a meeting agenda, the Jason's Law Survey updated data, and more information on the Coalition.


The Coalition brings together stakeholders from the public sector, transportation organizations, the freight industry, and other groups to advance safe truck parking to:

  • Collaborate nationally and among regions to identify opportunities and solutions for truck parking needs;
  • Share information on data and new analyses developed by stakeholders to understand needs and trends in truck parking;
  • Encourage partnerships among stakeholders to implement solutions, and;
  • Identify opportunities to use existing and new programs to support truck parking implementation.

Truck parking capacity is a nationwide problem. Continued growth in truck traffic is outpacing the supply of public and private parking facilities needed for driver rest, decreasing safety for truck drivers and other vehicles on the road. Safety is the FHWA's top priority, and helping to ensure that commercial drivers have a safe place to rest is part of that goal. USDOT, in collaboration with major stakeholders engaged in truck parking, established the Coalition in August 2015 in response to the "Jason's Law Truck Parking Survey Results and Comparative Analysis."
