WESTLAKE, Ohio -- May 22, 2013

TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA® and Petro
Stopping Centers® travel center brands, has announced the opening of a newly
built truck service facility at the TA travel center located at I-65, Exit
230, in DeMotte, Indiana. This TA Truck Service location offers four service
bays and is open 24/7/365.

Highly trained ASE- and TIA-certified technicians at this TA Truck Service
location, and throughout the TA and Petro Service Network, specialize in
providing light duty repair, brakes, electrical, alignment, air conditioning,
preventive maintenance, inspections and RoadSquad™ emergency road call
services. This location increases the total number of truck service facilities
in the TA and Petro branded chain to 233.

As with its other recently built truck service facilities, TravelCenters has
designed the DeMotte location to include a back-up generator to provide power
when there is an electrical outage. Additionally, the design includes an
outdoor patio, where, on good weather days, drivers can relax and enjoy the
outdoors while their truck maintenance is complete. There is also an ample
indoor waiting area with TVs.

“This is the third Truck Service facility we have built and opened within the
last month,” shared Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters. “We are
happy to continue to be able to build and offer more truck maintenance and
repair shops to our owner-operator and fleet customers. Now, nearly all of our
locations have a truck service facility,” he continued.

The TA-Petro annual independent survey of Overdrive magazine readers in late
2012 showed that TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube were “Voted Best” by
professional drivers in eight categories, including Best Maintenance Shops,
4:1; Most Competent Technicians, 7:1; Most Trusted to Perform, 10:1; and Most
Complete Shops, 8:1.

These ratios depict driver preference for TA and Petro versus the next closest
over-the-road repair and maintenance facilities, including truck stops. TA and
Petro were voted Best Overall Truck Stops, preferred 4:1 over the competition.
