Are students allowed to ride in the truck with the driver?

No. Students are not allowed to ride in the driver's truck unless they are family related. Almost all carriers prohibit strangers from riding in their trucks. All activities outside the writing of letters/emails including school visits and tours of the driver's without your express permission is prohibited. For safety reasons, truck trips are strictly prohibited.

Trucker Buddy does not determine the religious or ethnic background of any participant.

“This program reaches way beyond a pen and paper,” said Fred Sweetwood, a long time Trucker Buddy and driver for over 40 years. “It paints the Rockies, the bitter cold of North Dakota and the devastation of Oklahoma City and Katrina. It brings America to the classroom through the eyes of a truck driver.”
