Public Hearing on ORCA LIFT $1.00 Pilot Fare

December 15, 2022 | -

The purpose of this hearing is to receive public comment on Sound Transit’s ORCA LIFT $1 Pilot Fare. Sound Transit lowered the fare for low-income adults (ORCA LIFT) on all Sound Transit services from $1.50 to $1.00 for a six-month period. An extensive public engagement process will obtain feedback and develop a Fare Equity Analysis to support a possible Board decision on making this a permanent fare change.

Information about the proposed plan is provided on the Sound Transit website at https://www.soundtransit.org/get-to-know-us/news-events/news-releases/board-adopts-updated-fare-compliance-approaches-lowering
