Fuel Island Review
This "Fuel Island Review TA Alabama Montgomery" is a
review of the fuel island at the TA (TravelCenters of America) in
Montgomery, AL, USA. This facility is also known as the Montgomery
This review is being conducted based upon our
own expectations of what a fuel island that caters to
professional truck drivers of commercial motor vehicles should be like.
Mike's driver manager at his
trucking company has said that the company wants feedback
from their drivers regarding their fuel solutions (locations where they
are assigned to get fuel). If the drivers have a bad experience, they
are to report that and if the company receives enough bad reports about
a particular fueling location, the company will look for alternatives.
In this way, there is an economic incentive for truck
stops to provide what drivers need and want when they arrive
at a fueling location.
For our review, we are choosing to assign a number to
each aspect of the fuel island experience:
- "5" is excellent;
- "4" is very good;
- "3" is average or ok;
- "2" is unsatisfactory and
- "1" is poor and needs
immediate corrective action; and
- "N/A" means not applicable.
We are choosing not to identify a specific bay because
we figure that
what goes at one bay at a facility will generally be true at all of
