A major truck stop and travel center in the Pacific Northwest now lets drivers reserve truck parking ahead of their arrival.
Jubitz Travel Center, which is located on Vancouver Way just off Interstate 5 in Portland, Oregon, now has 18 truck parking spots in its main lot that can be reserved for $15 each. The company earlier said it “is committed to listening to the needs of professional drivers and providing services to make their jobs a little easier” and the ability reserve parking ahead of time is one way to do that.
Jubitz said the majority of its 250 truck parking spots remain free on a first-come, first-served basis. Truckers reserving a space can park any time after 4 p.m. and must leave that space before 3 p.m. the next day.
Reservations can only be made using the Parkmobile website. Then:
- Click the “Search by Address, City or State” field and update arrival time to “Arrive after 4:00 PM,” then search
- Select the “Reserve. Park Here!” button
- Create your ParkMobile account or log in
- Add your vehicle and payment method and checkout
ParkMobile accepts nationally recognized credit cards. It cannot process AMBEST redemptions or fleet cards.
Reserved truck parking spots can be found by turning left when entering the truck parking lot. Reserved spots are marked with signs. Just move it aside and park. If you need assistance moving the sign, Jubitz says to pull into the 15-minute parking area and see a fuel desk attendant.
Jubitz offers a driver’s lounge, free wifi, DIY pet washing station, scale, Blue Beacon truck wash, barbershop, cinema, shoe repair, hotel and several restaurants.
