Trucker Path Teams with Goodyear

Roadside Service is now available from Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Center locations through the mobile app

PHOENIX, Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Trucker Path, the most popular app in the U.S. for over the road drivers, is now giving its members direct access to roadside service provided by Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Center (CTSC) locations. By working together, Trucker Path and Goodyear CTSC locations are able to offer a high level of support to drivers in the event that a tire-related issue occurs on the road, getting trucks back on the road quickly.

Trucker Path members can easily utilize a "click-to-call" feature within the app that connects them directly to Goodyear roadside service, which is provided by nearly 200 Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers from coast to coast.

"We are excited to offer this valuable service to Trucker Path members," said Dustin Lancy, marketing manager, Goodyear.

With over 700,000 truck drivers as active monthly users, Trucker Path is America's largest over the road driver community. "Our members continually tell us how using our app improves life on the road by helping reduce the stress that comes with planning a trip, finding the best fuel prices or searching for safe parking," said Chris Oliver, Trucker Path's Chief Business Officer. "Our new relationship with Goodyear allows our app to provide even more value to our members by connecting them with top-notch roadside service with just a few simple taps." Trucker Path is the only app that showcases "truckers helping truckers" by crowd sourcing valuable truck parking space availability and weigh station open or close statuses.

To connect with roadside service provided by Goodyear CTSC locations, drivers simply go to the Trucker Path app menu, click on Roadside Assistance, click Goodyear and press the "call now" button on the landing page. Members can also save the dedicated Trucker Path roadside service number (1-833-861-6190) to their phone for instant connection to the service program. Additionally, members can easily find the nearest Goodyear CTSC within the Trucker Path app by selecting TIRES in the PIN filter.

"By enabling our members to access roadside service from Goodyear CTSC locations by using the Trucker Path app, we are providing a solution that helps them get back on the road quickly and efficiently," said Oliver from Trucker Path. "This relationship is just one of the many benefits Trucker Path can offer its members who are embracing the power of our industry-leading mobile technology."
