U.S. Bank and TravelCenters of America Deepen Ties via New Single Voyager® Fleet Card Solution

TA, Petro and Minit Mart will be the first to accept the newly enhanced Voyager Fleet Card

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 24, 2016– TravelCenters of America, operator of the TA® and Petro Stopping Centers® brands and Minit Mart® convenience stores, is expanding its relationship with U.S. Bank by accepting a new single Voyager Fleet Card solution at all of its truck stop and convenience store locations. The new single Voyager Fleet Card combines the robust fleet control functionality needed by heavy-duty commercial rigs at truck stops with the comprehensive data capture capabilities required by smaller vehicle fleets at retail locations. For the first time, all fleet classes can be managed through one card, one network and one program management platform.

“Partnering with U.S. Bank on the first true single card solution means we can better serve the needs of mixed fleets,” said TravelCenters CEO Tom O’Brien. “We have long valued our relationship with U.S. Bank, and this agreement deepens it to a new level. We look forward to issuing the new card to our employee drivers in the coming months, and expect to begin accepting it from customers in 2017.”

U.S. Bank Global Transportation Solutions General Manager John Hardin echoed O’Brien’s comments. “Expanding our partnership in this way brings the efficiencies of a single solution to TravelCenters and to the market at large.” Hardin said. “They are able to better meet the needs of their fleet, while we solidify our leadership position in the industry with the first fully integrated fuel payment solution to cover all eight fleet classes in a single card.”

The Voyager Network, owned and operated by U.S. Bank, includes thousands of participating fueling, maintenance and service locations nationwide, including TA, Petro and Minit Mart outlets. Drivers and fleet managers can find card-accepting locations with the Voyager Mobile App or the merchant locator within U.S. Bank Fleet Commander® Online.
