    Hi y'all

    I have knee cartilage problem on my left knee so I can't drive a truck with manual transmission anymore!

    Please advise me which trucking company has automatic transmission with weekly home time!

    Thanks,

    TransAm and Maverick but Maverick is flatbed so that might do more harm to your knee.

    Maverick now has a temp controlled division, I'm not sure about home time.

    Bowman based out of Williamsport, Md has automatics and are transitioning most of their fleet to go that route. Also their is an outfit DoT Foods that has ALL automatics but some of the work is you have to be able to unload your truck at your stops. Good luck in your search. Probably be better off trying to get on with some type of Coach or bus Company..ie Megabus or greyhound

    Automatics are great! I drive a new Volvo with the 12 speed iShift. Don't care if I ever go back to a stick shift.
