TA announces Reserve-It parking
TravelCenters of America has announced a new program for professional drivers: Reserve-It. Reserve-It allows drivers to reserve a parking space at select TA and Petro locations in advance of arriving.
Reserve-It will be available at 48 TA and Petro sites by Nov. 1. A total of 74 sites will offer the program by year-end; more locations may be added in 2013 based on driver demand. To inquire about Reserve-It pricing and reserve a space with a credit card, drivers call the Reserve-It reservations center, toll free, at 1-855-VIP-PARK (855-847-7275) or reserve the space in person at the fuel desk of the participating site where they want to park. The check-in time for Reserve-It spaces is 4 p.m.; check out is before 3 p.m. the following day.
Sites offering Reserve-It have set aside a small percentage of spots, generally 5 percent of the spaces on average, for reserved parking. These locations still maintain a high number of traditional “unreserved” parking spaces available on a first-come basis. Drivers can find where Reserve-It is offered on the TA and Petro web sites, the TruckSmart mobile app, and on the directory pages of RoadKing magazine, which can be found at all TA and Petro locations. Prices vary by site and can be accessed through the toll-free number.
