4. Fare changes

The Sound Transit Board approved changes to ST Express bus fares at their April 2018 board meeting. Sound Transit will implement the changes in phases between 2018-2020.

On July 1 2018, bus commuters with an ORCA Lift or Youth pass began using a flat $1.50 fare, while Senior or Disabled pass holders began paying a flat $1.00 fare. On July 1, 2020, Adult riders will pay a flat fare of $3.25 on all ST Express bus routes. The new fare structure eliminates the previous two-zone fare system in favor of one simple fare throughout the ST Express service area.
