Women In Motion, Trucker Path work to enhance truck stop safety and convenience

March 25, 2024
Over 100 truck stops have joined WIM and Trucker Path’s effort to help women identify and locate safe, convenient truck stops.

American Trucking Associations' Women In Motion and Trucker Path have announced that more than 100 truck stops have joined their effort to address the concerns of women on the road. The organizations are using this milestone to encourage more truck stops to become involved and support women drivers.

“We are thrilled that, so far, 100 truck stops have updated their information on Trucker Path to inform women drivers of the availability of safe, accessible facilities,” said Trucker Path CMO Chris Oliver. “Through our platform, women can quickly and easily identify stops along their routes offering amenities catering to their needs, all while accessing real-time information about parking availability, fuel pricing and discounts, and so much more. Additionally, they can contribute their comments and reviews that serve as a valuable resource for fellow drivers—both women and men. We look forward to our continued growth alongside Women In Motion as we collectively endeavor to make our industry more inclusive and welcoming for all.”

A partnership between WIM and Trucker Path was announced last October to help women identify and locate safe and convenient truck stops. The collaboration enabled Trucker Path to add several features to its existing mobile app to identify and locate facilities with specific safety amenities rated highly by women.

“Women In Motion and ATA have made increasing access to safe truck parking a primary mission, so helping women find those facilities while on the road is the next logical step in furthering that mission,” said Women In Motion Co-Chair Sarah Rajtik, ATA’s chief operating officer. “Enrolling over 100 truck stops through this partnership is a terrific start, and we hope the use of this app continues to spread from coast to coast. The more this app is adopted by truck stops, embraced by fleets, and reviewed by drivers, the more women can rely on it as a tool to feel safe on the roads.”

Participating truck stops can mark whether they have the following amenities on the Trucker Path app:

  • Lighted parking
  • Lighted bathroom access
  • Lighted lounge areas
  • Lighted shower facilities with 24/7 access
  • Lighted laundry facilities with 24/7 access
  • Round-the-clock maintenance
  • On-site security

Drivers can provide updates on the condition of these amenities through the Trucker Path mobile app. Facilities with all seven will be marked with the Women In Motion logo. To date, nine truck stops have received this distinction:

  • Circle C Travel Plaza – PTP Stop, Walterboro, South Carolina
  • Ports to Plains Truck Plaza, Lamar, Colorado
  • Garden Inn Truck Plaza, Cabool, Missouri
  • Garden Inn Truck Plaza, Mound City, Missouri
  • King Travel Plaza, Kingland, Georgia
  • Big Apple Travel Center, Joplin, Missouri
  • Compass Travel Center, Demotte, Indiana
  • American Truck Plaza, Milton, Pennsylvania
  • Drayup Inc., Savannah, Georgia

Truck parking facilities interested in obtaining the Women In Motion branding can log into the Trucker Path Business Portal and follow a few steps. Truck parking facilities not listed on the Trucker Path app can register for free.
