DALLAS, May 4, 2020 – Motel 6, the economy lodging brand that enables you to “save more for what you travel for™,” and Trucker Path, America’s most popular app for truckers looking for truck stops and available parking, announced today a partnership aimed at helping professional drivers, who are keeping the lights on for America by continuing to haul essential goods during the current global health crisis, effortlessly find any of the nearly 1,400 Motel 6 locations through the app while on the job.
Motel 6 shares Trucker Path’s passion for celebrating hardworking truck drivers all over the country, and has provided them with an affordable, welcoming place to rest on the road wherever their journey takes them since the first Motel 6 opened in 1962.
