TravelCenters of America Releases TruckSmart® Mobile App Update

TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters) operator of the TA® and Petro Stopping Centers® travel center brands, has released an update to its TruckSmart® Mobile App. The update, 2.4.4, provides professional drivers with new and more user-friendly features.

TruckSmart’s update includes the ability for drivers to create and save their ‘favorite’ TA and Petro locations for quick and easy viewing. Additionally, guests can see the local Hometown Favorites prepared by full-service Petro Iron Skillet® and TA restaurants on each location’s amenities page. And, amenities icons can now be pressed and held for more detailed descriptions. Drivers can also call the Reserve-It™ Parking Reservation number with the touch of a button.

“We receive a lot of calls from drivers who love using the app,” said Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters. “The new version implements many of their suggestions and adds other features, too,” he added.

All of the features that have made TruckSmart an industry-leading app have remained, including the Instant Shower feature. With the app, UltraONE® Driver Rewards Program members can reserve a shower through the app, pay for it with credits or Points, be placed in the queue, and receive an email when the shower is ready … all without stepping foot in the travel center.

UltraONE account information is still readily available on the Balances screen, which now shows YOUR Rewards Program ‘visits,’ and the number of available parking spaces and showers at each site are always available. One-touch calling to RoadSquad Connect™ anywhere, anytime, emergency roadside service remains at the user’s fingertips.

More than 180,000 users have downloaded the free TruckSmart app to their iPhone or Android smartphone. Drivers without a smartphone on these platforms can access the app through any HTML5 browser at www.trucksmartapp.com.
