Ticket to Ride & TARC meet with Amazon

On September 9, 10 & 11 the Ticket to Ride and TARC marketing teams met with employees and leaders at the Amazon fulfillment center on Patrol Road in Jeffersonville. Ticket to Ride’s commuter program allows employees to drastically reduce the cost of getting to and from work, increasing employee satisfaction while also providing many benefits to companies.

The Jeffersonville location is the largest fulfillment center in North America. The center opened for business in October of 2012 and has since employed around 900 people. Employees who use Ticket to Ride will avoid the headaches of rush hour traffic, and with extra time in the morning to prepare for the day ahead, they will arrive at work relaxed and ready to go.

About 120 Amazon employees stopped and talked with Ticket to Ride and TARC representatives during the day shift and night shift lunch breaks over the three day period. They asked about different ways to get to work, such as carpooling, vanpooling and TARC. Eligible employees also signed up for the Ticket to Ride Guaranteed Ride Home program. If you’re in a Carpool, Vanpool, Bikepool or ride TARC and an emergency happens, Guaranteed Ride Home through Ticket To Ride will reimburse you 80% of the cost of your taxi ride including tip, up to 100 miles. You may use the Guaranteed Ride Home service up to four times a year.

The meetings were successful in learning the needs of the workers at Amazon. Ticket-to-Ride and TARC hope to meet once each quarter with Amazon to educate people and to continue to interest them in our services.
