We at TravelCenters of America believe professional drivers deserve respect and recognition for the positive effect they have on our lives.
That’s why we’re proud to announce the Citizen Driver Program. This honor recognizes drivers who earn public respect for our industry through good citizenship, safety, community involvement, health and wellness, and leadership. We're asking you to help us find our best Citizen Drivers. Anyone can nominate a driver – fleet owners, employees, husbands, wives, sons, daughters, trucking organization members, trucking industry suppliers.
The Citizen Driver program was created in 2013 to recognize the professional drivers who keep our economy moving and who embody the long-held values of the truck driving profession through citizenship, safety, health and wellness, community involvement and leadership.
