DMVFTA Opens Food Truck Owner Spot Trading Website

As previously mentioned, the DMV Food Truck Association, in conjunction with GMU, have developed a website app to enable food truck owners to trade their DCRA vending lottery spots.  For $5 or $10/month (non-DMVFTA members), food truck owners can enter the spots that they would like to trade and await the results via email a few days later.  Owners that sign-up in the month of April can cancel the subscription anytime before June 30 without being charged, so it seems like something worth trying, right? :-)  A full FAQ is online at the DMVFTA website.

GMU Students Create Spot-Swapping Platform For DC Food Trucks

The Washington Business Journal has the scoop on a new software platform, developed by George Mason University masters students, that let’s DC food truck owners swap DCRA lottery parking spots!

The background here is that every month, DC food trucks apply for and receive assigned parking spaces for all of the hot serving locations in the District.  Sometimes, the food truck owners don’t get assigned the locations that they prefer to serve from on specific days, so begins a very manual process of tweeting, emailing, texting and calling other food truck owners to swap their assigned spaces; a job better preformed by a computer.

It sounds like the system is still in development, to be tested next month!  What does this mean for you?  Well, less vacant DCRA lottery parking spaces and more lunch options.  :-)

Thanks to David for the tip!
