| Friday, February 25, 2011

Pilot has opened a new travel center in northernmost California that features 105 parking spaces for trucks. The new stop is located off Interstate 5 at Exit 745.

The new Pilot ? located about ten miles from Mount Shasta ? offers not only a scenic backdrop but a full slate of amenities for truckers and the motoring public. The new, 9,971-square-foot center features four fuel islands and eight diesel islands with high-speed fuel pumps along with a restaurant and convenience items.

The Weed travel center includes a Subway restaurant; restrooms; pay phones; fax and copy services; Western Union; an ATM; check cashing services; general merchandise for professional drivers and highway travelers; and an arcade area. The new location also features a full hot and cold deli with fresh made products such as salads, double bacon cheeseburgers and Pepperoni?s handmade Italian pizza as well as an expanded grill area with Oscar Mayer hot dogs.

In addition to diesel fuel, professional drivers will have access to such services as a CAT scale, laundry services, seven automated showers and 105 parking spaces for trucks. The Weed location also features a driver kiosk, so truckers can get in and out of the store quickly and get on their way.

As with all other Pilot Flying J locations, the Weed travel center honors the new Frequent Fueler Advantage card and continues to honor points accumulated on the Frequent Fueler, RV Real Value Card and Driver Payback cards.
