TA rolls out app feature designed to save truckers time while fueling


TravelCenters of America Inc. (TA) announced a new fueling feature on the company’s existing TruckSmart mobile app.

On January 21, TA announced the launch of the “PumpSmart” feature in the TruckSmart mobile app.

TA says that PumpSmart will allow drivers to activate fuel pumps and pay for fuel from inside their cabs while fueling at TA, TA Express, and Petro Stopping Center locations.

“The PumpSmart feature is available for UltraONE loyalty members paying for fuel with commercial payment cards. The app securely stores members’ payment information and links to their UltraONE profile, automatically applying loyalty points to a driver’s account after fueling. TA plans to further enhance the PumpSmart feature and expand payment options in the next several months,” the company said in a news release.

“We’re focused on enhancing the guest experience at TA and serving professional drivers in a way they want to interact with us, across every part of our business,” said Jon Pertchik, CEO of TA. “Investing in technology is a major part of the revamped travel center experience and our company transformation. We look forward to growing our capabilities and focusing on convenience for all travelers who visit us.”
