MAG conducted a Truck Parking Study to assess commercial truck parking supply and demand in the region. Freight is an essential part of Arizona's economy and delivers food, clothing, gas, medicines, and other essential goods to our region. The movement of goods by trucks continues to grow both nationally and locally. This growth in trucking, coupled with new safety regulations, has created truck parking challenges nationwide with drivers reporting difficulty in locating safe spaces to park.

This study assessed:

  • Truck-parking patterns 
  • Freight demand 
  • Impact of safety regulations 
  • Impact of future technologies on truck parking (autonomous trucking, etc.)

The study concluded in September 2021 and provides recommendations to address current and future truck parking needs and safe solutions for both truck drivers and the surrounding community.

The plan serves as a road map for future truck parking solutions.
