If you're an ORCA LIFT passenger, Regional Reduced Fare Permit holder or between the ages of 6 and 18, your Sounder fare could be going down in 2021.
Sound Transit is considering reducing fares for these riders to make Sounder more accessible, and to simplify our fares system wide by bringing Sounder fares in line with those of Link light rail and ST Express buses.
ORCA LIFT fares are for low-income adult passengers. Regional Reduced Fare permit holders are seniors age 65+ and riders with disabilities.
|Current fares*||Proposed fare|
|Youth (ages 6-18)||$2.50-$4.25||$1.50|
*Depending on distance traveled
No changes are proposed to regular adult fares on Sounder.
Let us know what you think about these changes before Dec. 6, 2020 by:
- Taking an online survey.
- Emailing us at email@example.com.
- Calling us at 800.201.4900.
- Attending the virtual public hearing at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 3.
Pending approval by the Sound Transit Board, these fare changes are expected to be implemented by March 1, 2021.
