Ben Franklin Transit Extends Route 64 to Increase Service to East Pasco and Amazon Beginning March 12, 2023
Effective March 12, 2023, Ben Franklin Transit (BFT) will extend Pasco’s Route 64 service to include the new Amazon warehouses as well as the communities of Tierra Vida and Lakeview near Highway 12 in east Pasco.
This service will provide greater access to public transportation for both east Pasco residents and those commuting to the new Amazon facilities. Historically, Amazon has sought public transportation options for its employees rather than commuting via personal vehicles. This route extension will also help eliminate barriers to education and provide needed support for students participating in afterschool activities.
“I am excited to announce that Ben Franklin Transit will begin service to two additional communities in east Pasco, and we have partnered with Amazon to make transit services available to their employees as soon as the facilities are up and running,” said BFT General Manager Rachelle Glazier. “Because of the forward-thinking work of our Planning Department and our recent hiring event, we are able to provide these much-needed services.”
