2020 was a challenging year across the country, and our nation’s OTR truckers understand more than ever how important it is to have a comfortable and safe place to stop and rest. Each year, Trucker Path determines the truck stops across the continental U.S. that offer the best services and amenities to drivers. There are awards for the best independent and chain truck stops nationally, the best stops in each state, and along three major highways (I-75, I-80, and I-95). While the pandemic influenced this year’s ratings and reviews, the chosen winners all provide high service levels that truckers appreciate.
Find a Winning Stop Along Your Route
Trucker Path conducts this survey to help drivers find a place to stop, rest, and revive themselves during long OTR trips. Steven Lopez, vice president of business development at Trucker Path, told American Trucker, “We have more than 6,000 chain and independent truck stops listed in the Trucker Path app and we’re constantly adding new locations. Trucker Path Best Truck Stops recognition lets drivers know they’ve come to the right place.”
