OKLAHOMA CITY, August 6, 2019 - Professional truck drivers can now better plan where to take showers while on the road thanks to an update to Love's Travel Stops mobile app. The Love's Connect app has a new feature called the "busy times" graph. It shows shower traffic based on historic data that each Love's location typically receives for every hour of the day.

Love's is the only travel stop network with this mobile app feature.

"Planning an efficient route is of utmost importance for our customers, which is why we developed this new app feature," said Jerry Hamm, senior manager of customer technology and innovation. "This is an exciting piece of technology that we believe will improve our customer's experience as they drive across the country."

The busy times graph idea came from feedback Love's received from drivers who said they wanted a better way to plan when to stop for a shower. The app already allows drivers to check in for a shower at a Love's location and skip the fuel desk. Drivers can download the Love's Connect app here.

Other current app features include:

  • Ability to view Love's and Speedco store details.
  • Enhanced route planner.
  • An improved roadside assistance screen that links to nearby Love's Truck Tire Care locations.
  • Fuel pump activation from your truck with Love's mobile pay.
  • Management of My Love Rewards account.
