Hey drivers there's a new truckstop in Northlake, IL. It's called AF Truck Center. At the intersection of I-294 and 300 West North Street. Extremely safe all fenced in, easy access in and out. Beautifully designed nice lot about 125 spaces easy to get into. Brand new has nice tv room and a great game room. Subway inside. Parking the first 3 hours are free, 24 hours is $20 bucks. One way in and one way out through the pay gate. Great place, check it out. I got there at 9pm and still had plenty of spaces its that new so it doesn't get packed yet. Drivers don't know about it yet.

I Start school in April so I am trying to learn the ins and outs. I assume it is not the norm to pay to park at a truckstop. What makes this one different, and who pays, driver or company?

Well there's no truck stops within a several mile radius in this area. So no you Usally do not pay for parking at truckstops. Because there were no there in the area where I delivered to and was out of drive time my company paid for my parking for my 10 hour break.

Thanks B58. What amenities do pay to park truck stops offer that others don't? Or is it just a convenience factor?

Usually the truck stops that make you pay are ones that can because drivers have limited choices for parking in that area. They don't necessarily have any extra amenities over ones that don't charge.
