This survey, funded by the Government of Ontario, is intended to advise the Ontario Ministry of Transportation on the truck parking situation along Southern Ontario highways. The survey asks about the shortage of parking and the hardships that this causes for drivers in terms of lost time, lost earnings, and general aggravation.
OTA believes that commercial truck drivers know the most about parking, so we are inviting all drivers who use Southern Ontario highways to complete our survey (including drivers who are based outside Ontario).
This strictly confidential survey asks about specific parking needs and rest stops along major highways as well as secondary roads across Southern Ontario. The survey will be available online until February 2018 to allow as many truck drivers as possible to respond.
Results from the survey will be presented to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to help determine where additional truck parking is needed and what amenities truck drivers really need at existing truck stops (such as washrooms, showers that are available 24/7).
