Amazon commute benefits in Seattle

Can an Amazon employee please confirm about the actual commute benefits provided by Amazon? I know they provide a card which can be used on all buses and local trains but how about these:

1. Scoop
2. Uber/Lyft
3. Parking (if I choose to drive)

I heard about $160 reimbursement, does it include all 3 or $160 for each of these?

Checked with recruiter and got a link but it's not clear on that page.

    Related, can I apply the $160 toward my apartment's parking garage if I walk to work?

      No. Residential parking is not allowed to be expensed against the $160.

      No, its actually very clearly stated that non office hour parking (or downtown overnight parking) is not reimbursable.

    Your benefit is after you get off of that long, stinky, sticky ass bus ride and still have a little energy left, you can dive into a pile of 🍌 until your manager yells at you for arriving past 8am and also eating all of the 🍌

      Can you just add expenses below $25 without a receipt and be reimbursed?

    Isn’t Scoop free for Amazon employees?

    Its $160 per month-whether you spend it on UberPOOL, LyftPOOL, scoop, or parking. You get taxed on the reimbursement for rideshares but not for parking. Rideshares are reimbursable if you are in a POOL. In general Amazon is frugal. Its part of the culture
