Truck drivers provide New York City with the food and goods that keep it running. To help truckers safely meet Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration (FMSCA) mandatory rest periods, the city has established temporary rest areas at two strategic freight hubs as part of its COVID-19 response.
Each area will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for rest periods during the day or overnight, with bathrooms, mobile lights, trash cans, and security patrol. Drivers should keep their vehicles secure, as the city is not responsible for any stolen items.
See this flyer for descriptions and maps of the rest stops in the Bronx and Staten Island.
