Truck Parking Information Management System (TPIMS)




The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has partnered with seven other states to launch a real-time parking availability information system for commercial drivers in order to improve the safety and efficiency of the region’s freight network. The Mid-America Association of State Transportation Officials (MAASTO) Regional Truck Parking Information Management System (TPIMS) will display information to truckers on high-volume roadways – including Interstates 65, 71 and 75 in Kentucky – through dynamic roadside signs.

The multi-state project is financed by a $25 million federal BUILD (formerly TIGER) grant and $3.6 million in collective state funds. Road signs across Kentucky, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin labeled “Available Truck Parking” will digitally display the number of truck spaces open at nearby parking locations monitored by the TPIMS system. In addition to six dynamic signs, Kentucky will utilize a web-based data feed, providing drivers with the number of spaces open in the 14 designated lots and static images of parking areas.
