ORCA agencies plan new Regional Day Pass options
Joint Board seeks public comments on plans for implementing program

Following a pilot program last year, the transit agencies participating in the ORCA smart card system are proposing to implement a permanent Regional Day Pass program. The agencies are seeking community input on the program, which would consist of two new ORCA pass products:

  • A $8 Regional Day Pass for adult riders valid for unlimited rides on services with fares up to $3.50
  • A $4.50 Regional Day Pass for ORCA Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP) holders (seniors and riders with disabilities) valid for unlimited rides on services with fares up to $1.75.

If the fare value of the regional day pass ($3.50 adult, $1.75 RRFP) is less than the fare for the service, the rider can pay a fare upgrade using E-purse stored on the ORCA card or with cash on buses.

The regional day pass is intended to make it easier for tourists and visitors to use transit while in town. Local residents can also purchase the regional day pass anywhere ORCA cards are sold. 

A new ORCA card costs $5 for adults and $3 for seniors (65+) or riders with disabilities. The day pass will be available at ORCA revalue locations or online, by mail and phone.

These new products will be accepted on bus, light rail, commuter rail, streetcar and foot ferry services operated by Community Transit, Everett Transit, King County Metro, Kitsap Transit, Pierce Transit and Sound Transit. As with the current ORCA PugetPass, the ORCA Regional Day Pass will not be valid for fare payment on Washington State Ferries service.

Las agencias de ORCA planifican nuevas opciones de Pase Diario Regional
El Consejo Conjunto solicita comentarios públicos sobre los planes para implementar el programa
Luego de un programa piloto el año pasado, las agencias de transporte público que participan en el sistema de tarjetas inteligentes ORCA proponen implementar un programa permanente de Pase Diario Regional. Las agencias desean obtener sugerencias de la comunidad acerca del programa, que consistiría en dos nuevos productos de pases ORCA:

  • Un Pase Diario Regional de $8 para pasajeros adultos, válido para viajes ilimitados en servicios con tarifas de hasta $3.50
  • Un Pase Diario Regional de $4.50 para los titulares de permisos reducidos Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP) de ORCA (adultos mayores y pasajeros con discapacidades) válido por viajes ilimitados en servicios con tarifas de hasta $1.75.

Si el valor de la tarifa del pase diario regional ($3.50 adultos, $1.75 RRFP) es inferior a la tarifa por el servicio, el pasajero podrá pagar una ampliación de la tarifa utilizando un E-purse almacenado en la tarjeta ORCA o con efectivo en los autobuses.

El propósito del pase diario regional es hacer que a los turistas y visitantes les resulte más fácil utilizar el transporte público mientras se encuentran en la ciudad. Los residentes locales también pueden comprar el pase diario regional en cualquier lugar donde se vendan las tarjetas ORCA. 

Una nueva tarjeta ORCA cuesta $5 para los adultos y $3 para los adultos mayores (más de 65 años) o pasajeros con discapacidades. El pase diario estará disponible en los centros de recarga de ORCA o en línea, por correo y por teléfono.

Estos nuevos productos serán aceptados en autobuses, trenes ligeros, trenes suburbanos, tranvías y servicios de transbordador para pasajeros sin vehículo operados por Community Transit, Everett Transit, King County Metro, Kitsap Transit, Pierce Transit y Sound Transit. Al igual que con el actual PugetPass de ORCA, el Pase Diario Regional de ORCA no será válido para el pago de los servicios de Transbordador del Estado de Washington.

Trip Planner Help

Trip Planner Tips - Entering Locations

To create a trip plan you need to enter both a starting location (origin) and an ending location (destination). For information about stops, schedules, or service at a specific location, you only need to enter one location.

The Trip Planner recognizes most street intersections and addresses as well as many landmarks in Pierce, King, and Snohomish Counties. If what you entered is not immediately recognized, the Trip Planner will offer you a list of options. You can choose one of the options, but if your intended location is not there, select the "Revise Original Entries" link to return to the entry page and change the entries you have already made.

Addresses

  • You don't need to type in the city along with the address. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type 110 Jones instead of 110 Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 1000 Main instead of 1000 S Main. But type 1000 West Viewmont for 1000 West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets and addresses are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby location, such as an intersection or a landmark.
  • You should not enter the suite number or apartment number.  Just the house number and street name (Example: type in 401 Broadway instead of 401 Broadway Avenue Suite 800).

Intersections

  • The "&" symbol is the only character used between two street names to show an intersection. (Examples: 1st & B, James & Madison)
  • You don't need to type in the city. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type Conifer & Jones instead of Conifer Circle & Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 3rd & Main instead of 3rd S & S Main. But type 34th & West Viewmont for 34th W & West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby intersection or a landmark.
