TravelCenters of America (TA) has acquired its first Canadian truckstop, located on Provincial Highway 401 in Woodstock, Ontario.

Westlake, OH-based TA said it would own and operate the 25,000-sq.-ft. facility and will rename it Woodstock 230 Travel Centre.

Ultramar-branded diesel fuel will be sold through a card-lock system, which is the prevalent means of selling diesel fuel in Canada. At the same dispensers, TA customers will be able to purchase diesel fuel just as they do in the U.S.

The site will also offer Ultramar gasoline, 220 truck parking spaces, a 204-seat restaurant, twelve private showers and other amenities. Plans call for a new fast-food court and the addition of a RoadKing Club in the near future, TA said.
