Lack of adequate accommodation for truck parking along major freight corridors challenges transportation agencies and the trucking industry. TRB hosted a webinar on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern that provided a better understanding of the process for developing a truck parking information system along with successful strategies employed by leading agencies, technologies that might be considered to support sharing parking availability, and case studies of systems that may be transferable to other agencies. Presenters shared potential strategies for monitoring, ITS design, overcoming legal barriers, and funding mechanisms.
This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program and the Standing Technical Committee on Truck and Bus Safety.
