  3. 3. Continued from page A‘) Another way to watch movies is through online streaming, and for the high-speed lntemet connection needed to stream videos, many driv- ers tum to Idle/ tir. the basic Internet worlts wel for checking e-malls mcl getting weather updates, said letf Maurer, chief listening ot'l"rcer for ldle/ ir. and | dluA'r Broadband is oi- hered as an upgrade. "It's both wired and wireless. Any device that ac- cepts Vlft-fi —- your phone, tablet, gaming console — will connect. People watch vitletrs, they Skype, they garne and stay connected. " ldleAir is available only at truck stops thm have the systems installed, and its company said it has speci- lied parking spaces at more than is truck stops. Drivers need a window adapter so that the | dleAir service module can be positioned in a c. tb’s window opening. “We sell the window adapters for $5, and most of our fleet partners provide their drivers with them tor free, ” Maurer said. "The driver puts that in the open window, and the service module fits ‘mm the athpoer. the module has he alr vent and . Il of the corttmk, in- chitlng an iPa(l-sized touch screen. " Maurer estimated that idling a truck costs $3 to $4 an hour. in tenns of fuel burned plus wear and tear on the engine. ‘Idle/ tir ofiers multiple price points, bu it's gener- ally around $2 an hour, ’ he said, ‘intentlortally priced at halfthe ms of idling your enyne. " Urilllte Ep'I: Vuc, which B sold only to fleets, drivers sometimes pay for IlleAtr themselves, and some- time oorrpanies pay. ‘I pay uptrorl, but my company reimburses me for it. To save on their luel costs, some companies will reimburse you tor the ldleAir costs. Tina’: probdnly the main lac- tor that got me started on Idle/ ttr. but it they changed their policy on it. I'd probably still use it. ‘ driver la- rnh Smith said. ‘I pay ldlcAir [or .1 month at a time, and I use it enough times to Mtere it's more cost-etfit'ient to do the monthly deal than to pay for the 24 hours or by the hour, " he said. Audrey Stowers drives .1 tmck on runs that routinely take her between Kentucky and California on inter- stdes til. 20 and 40, so she sees a In ot hot weather in the summer. “I use Idle-Air as much as I ran, " shr- suld. "I even dc-adhead to get to ldoAir, sornctimcs as much as 50 miles, because the / /(i is so good. Theairfluwsuutoiabigholesothc entire truck gr. -ts cooled down. ‘ Stow: -rs also uses ld| eAir’s In- ternet access and electricity. "I watch movies, use e-mail and look for loads online, ‘ she said. "I cook with the electricity. l have a slow cooker in my cab that I use to C00l( meals. ‘ Randall Boyd, a driver who has dedicated runs out at Illinois, sald he uses | d|eAir at least every other dayandrnoreoien ifhecan man- age it. ‘I watch Hulu and Netflix on my Xbox One.

Our typical truck stop location has about 30 spaces. We're expanding each year. Our strategy is to choose new loca- tions carefully so ital our growth is said and sustainable. " Maurer said that the face at' trucking is changing as . i new gen- eralion of drivers takes the wheel. "these people bring . t diversity of interests. habits and needs, ” he said.

"We see Idle. -Air as helping to bridge that gap, bringing in peo- ple (rom other careers and profes- sions and ameliorating the difficulties of life on the road. " Maurer said. "The driver with the espresso maker is a great example of the way that the truck driver population is far more diverse -? than a lot ol Americans under- stand or appreciate. " 0
