Free Holiday Meals for BCOs

The Landstar tradition of offering complimentary holiday meals continues in hopes of making the season a little brighter for BCOs on the road and away from their families over the holidays.

Once again, Landstar has teamed up with TravelCenters of America (TA) and Petro Stopping Centers to offer complimentary meals on Thanksgiving (Nov. 23) and Christmas (Dec. 25).

There are two ways to receive your free holiday meal coupon:

  • Starting Nov. 1, 2017, UltraONE members can follow this link to register for a Thanksgiving meal coupon. The coupon can be printed at a TA/Petro kiosk on Thanksgiving Day.
  •  Click here to register for your Christmas meal coupons starting Dec. 1, 2017.
  • BCOs who are not UltraOne, RoadKing or Passport cardholders can stop by any Landstar orientation center or contact LCAPP at 800-531-5227 for their holiday meal ticket.

The deadline to log on and register for the meal coupon for Thanksgiving is 4 p.m. Nov. 20, 2017. The deadline to register for the Christmas meal coupon is 4 p.m. Dec. 20, 2017. BCOs can print out their meal tickets on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day at any TA or Petro kiosk.

Coupons are valid for a meal that costs up to $19 for an individual or up to $38 for team drivers and spouses. Meals are available at participating TA and Petro locations with full service restaurants.

The meal includes dinner, dessert, beverage and tax. The coupon is not valid for tips. Photocopies of the coupon will not be accepted. The meal coupons are only valid Nov. 23 and Dec. 25.
