Start Small, Achieve Big: How Amazon Reduced Parking Demand Amidst Colossal Growth

When starting a commute program, the most important thing to do is begin. Hear from Tim Waldrop, Transportation Program Manager at Amazon, about how the company started by solving one problem, and is now solving many. Take a deep dive into Amazon’s commuter benefit policies - their beginnings, evolution, and innovation - to learn how they got where they are today and their plans for the future of commute. By adding more daily choice with their ‘flexible commuter subsidy’ and shifting away from monthly parking, Amazon reduced its parking demand by 8.5% in 2019 amidst exponential growth in employee count. Tim will highlight the policy, technology, and partnership necessary for a broader impact —together — as we all drive (but not alone in a car) our organizations towards a future that makes commuter benefits the workplace norm.
