TORONTO, Ont. – Ontario has launched a free Ontario 511 app that provides some of the information about the place that offers food, fuel, and open rest areas for truck drivers who are on the job during Covid-19.
“This app represents yet another necessary step that our government is taking to support truck drivers in their efforts to keep goods moving and deliver essential supplies, such as personal protective equipment (PPE),” said Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney. “The trucking industry plays an important role in keeping our supply chain strong and our store shelves stocked all the time during the COVID-19.”
The Ontario 511 app provides images from more than 600 cameras and includes information on highway construction, collisions, and road closures. You can also identify the places that offer food, fuel, and open rest areas for truck drivers.
“The creation of the 511 apps is much appreciated and comes at a perfect time for the hard-working drivers out on the roads helping to steer Ontarians out of this crisis,” said Stephen Laskowski, president of the Ontario Trucking Association.
You can download The Ontario 511 app from App Store and Google Play for free.
