Amazon Makes Major Investment in Seattle Public Transit

Amazon is investing into Seattle's public transit.

Business Insider reports that the online retail giant is expected to invest $1.5 million in increasing bus frequency in the King County, Washington region.

The money will reportedly help to add 22 more weekday bus trips for a period of two years on some of the city's busiest routes.

John Schoettler, head of real estate at Amazon, said in a statement, "More than half of our employees get to work in ways other than a single occupant vehicle - including more than 20 percent that take the bus."

Amazon has paid for $60 million worth of public transit for its employees since 2014.

The company previously supported public transit in the region by investing $5.5 million in Seattle's streetcar in 2012.
