WESTLAKE, Ohio -- March 20, 2014

TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA® and Petro
Stopping Centers® travel center brands, has announced the opening of a newly
built TA Truck Service facility located at I-40, Exit 283 (3747 Express Dr.)
in Holbrook, AZ. The Holbrook location offers 4 service bays, and is open
24/7/365. The addition of this location takes the total number of truck
service facilities in the TA and Petro branded chains to 236.

Highly trained ASE- and TIA-certified technicians are on staff at this
location and throughout the TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube network. The TA
and Petro Service Network specializes in providing light duty repair, brakes,
electrical, alignment, air conditioning, preventive maintenance, inspections
and RoadSquad™ emergency road call services. All TA Truck Service and
Petro:Lube service centers now carry full lines of tires from Bridgestone,
Michelin, Goodyear, Continental, and Samson.

“We continue to add truck service facilities at our locations in order to
provide a more complete full-service offering across our network,” shared Tom
O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters. “TA Holbrook takes the number of
TA and Petro Truck Service facilities on I-40 in Arizona to three, and
positions a service center on a long span of highway where there previously
were none,” he added. “Additionally, this will increase the number of
RoadSquad emergency roadside service trucks staffed and available for our
customers to help keep them rolling.”

Later this year, the Holbrook truck service facility will offer Freightliner
ServicePoint, an authorized express service and light-duty repair program
available exclusively at TA and Petro truck service centers in cooperation
with Daimler Trucks North America. Freightliner ServicePoint is a key referral
point for Freightliner emergency and roadside repairs.

The new truck service facility has been built to include generator power in
case of an electrical outage. Additionally, to enhance the comfort of
professional drivers waiting for maintenance work to be performed, an outdoor
patio and seating area is being designed for customers to enjoy. A large,
indoor waiting area with a TV is available.

TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube dominated the most recent ‘Voted Best’ survey
in the Truck Repair categories, with driver preference being 3 to 1 in their
favor for Best Overall Maintenance Shops, 6 to 1 for Most Competent
Technicians, 5 to 1 for Most Complete Shops on the Interstate, 3 to 1 for Best
Roadside Assistance, and 5 to 1 for Most Trusted to Perform the Job Right.
These results are based on an independent TA/Petro survey of Overdrive
magazine readers conducted in the fall of 2013. The ratios depict professional
driver preference for TA and Petro versus the next closest truck stop brand.
