12 Apps to Find Semi Truck Parking Near You

Feb 25, 2022 2:26:19 PM


You’ve been behind the wheel for miles, all day long, and now it’s time for a break. Only one problem: Where do you park your big rig? An ongoing challenge for truck drivers is finding truck parking spots. They need a safe place to take mandatory breaks so they can power down and refuel, not just their vehicles, but themselves too. Parking illegally can put drivers at risk of theft or injury, and FMCSA fines can be costly, which is why finding adequate space for truck parking needs is so important. Luckily, software developers have stepped forward to help alleviate the issue. Mobile apps are available to help truck drivers answer the question: “Where is there semi truck parking near me?” Most apps are free to download and allow users to easily find rest stops, parking and gas stations. Check out the list of apps below.

  1. Trucker Path: Trucker Path is a free app that helps truckers with navigation, trip planning and routing. It also shows available parking, weigh stations and even fuel prices at truck stops.
