American Trucking Associations’ Interstate One: A virtual driving experience

Have you wondered what it’s like to get in an 18 wheeler and drive it? Thanks to the MIT FreightLab, The American Trucking Associations, and US Xpress, the ATA Interstate One Simulator will let your imagination hit the open road without having to get your CDL!

Did you know that more than 80% of American cities and towns exclusively rely on trucks to deliver their goods?

Attendees of the Cambridge Science Festival will have a unique opportunity to take a seat behind the wheel of an 18 wheeler in the Interstate One driving simulator. Interstate One is the ATA’s “classroom on wheels,” allowing the public to see firsthand the trucking industry’s initiatives, including the newest safety technology, and what an impact trucking has on daily life. Throughout the festival the driving simulator will be surrounded by ATA Road Team Captains, executive leadership from US Xpress, and trucking professionals to answer all your questions regarding supply chain and the trucking industry. Don’t miss your chance to see how nearly 3.6 million professional drivers take to the highways every day!
