Park ‘N View to provide telecom services for TA

WESTLAKE, Ohio — Park ‘N View, the in-cab cable TV and phone service provider, and TravelCenters of America, announced a partnership specifying Park ‘N View as the primary provider of TA’s internal and external telecommunications services.

The agreement involves telecom services for TA and its customers at its travel centre facilities across the United States. It bundles internal voice and data services with external payphone, prepaid phone card and in-cab services, including in-cab Internet access. As part of the agreement, both companies will market these expanded service offers to TA’s customer base of professional drivers.

“Up to now,” said Alex Ezazi, Park ‘N View’s vice president of marketing, “our private voice and data network was accessible only inside the truck. This will give drivers access inside the stop as well and enable fleets to work through one provider. It also enables TA and Park ‘N View to tailor their pricing plans and bundle their service for individual drivers as well as fleets.”

Park ‘N View’s latest national survey indicates 20% of drivers are now using laptops or PCs in their trucks.
