Idleaire fails to find buyer, closing Friday Knoxville News Sentinel

They were shopping for a buyer, but weren't able to find one. Report says that they're planning to close on Friday. No other information at this time.

Ok, just wondered, heard another driver talking abt them seizing operations after 12am the 29th of January. From what he said, the truckstop manager got an email, stating that the IdleAire services will seize at that time, and no IdleAire personnel is around.

Is this system even working still? I saw several drivers in the Oklahoma City Petro with them in their window.. and it appeared there was a glowing screen from what I could tell from the lot. I've never used it.. just curious.

Well being over here at the T/A at exit 142 in Oklahoma City, nobody has them in their windows. Haven't seen any IdleAire personnal since I got here on Thursday. I did talk to one of a drivers on Friday morning though, he said his shut off. I am using the Wi-Fi from IdleAire right now, but that could be shut off tomorrow.

The wifi is up as I connected just to see.. and a few others just put them in their windows around me recently even though there is a sign that its not operational on the door. I took a stroll over there earlier to check it out.

I spoke with an owner operator earlier today and he told me that IdleAire ceased operations as of noon, Friday.

I can't say I'll miss the people coming to my truck and trying to sign me up while I'm trying to sleep.

I went past the TA in Albert Lea, Minnesota yesterday and the overhaed structures were there but there were none of those big yellow hoses hanging down from them as far as I could see.
