ORCA Logo   

An ORCA card is an electronic fare payment system accepted on Kitsap Transit, Pierce Transit, King County Metro Transit, Community Transit, Sound Transit, Everett Transit and the Washington State Ferries.  It allows riders to load fare product, like a monthly pass onto their card and tap their card aboard a bus, train or ferry to pay their fare.  Instead of carrying different passes for different transit systems, riders carry just one card!

If you do not tap within 60 days, reactivate that E-purse by contacting ORCA customer service at 888-988-6722 or contactus@orcacard.com. Reduced Fare ORCA cards are issued as registered cards.
