Paying your Amtrak Rail Plus fares

Amtrak does not accept Sounder day passes or single-trip tickets. To ride Rail Plus trains, you must have an ORCA card loaded with a monthly pass, an ORCA Passport card or pay regular Amtrak fares.

Confirm your pass is equal to one-way fare for travel (i.e., your ORCA pass covers $3.50 fare from King Street Station to Edmonds or $4.50 fare to Everett).

Before getting on the train, you must get a Rail Plus validation ticket from the ticket vending machines (TVMs) at the train station (Sounder platform at King Street Station). Please follow these steps:

  • Select your destination: select the group of stations that includes your destination. then select the specific station.
  • Select the Amtrak RailPlus button that appears in the bottom right hand corner.
  • Insert your ORCA pass or Passport card in the card reader.
  • Pick up the Amtrak RailPlus ticket with a date, destination and ORCA card number from the tray below.
  • To ride Amtrak RailPlus, show the conductors both the ORCA card and the validation ticket during fare inspection.

The TVMs will not print a Rail Plus validation ticket if you do not have the correct ORCA pass.
