ST Express bus

On July 1st, full fares resumed on all Sound Transit services

ST Express buses transitioned to a single flat fare of $3.25 for all Adult riders, regardless of distance traveled. By eliminating fare zones, this change increases fares by 50 cents for trips within one county, and reduces fares by 50 cents for trips that cross county lines. Find out how this affects you on our ST Express flat fares page.

Learn more about fares for all services on our Fares page.

Sound Transit continues to operate with a reduced service level

More information on the specific trips canceled can be found on our Reduced Service page.

During the COVID-19 response riders should take into account that trip planning resources such as Google maps, One Bus Away and other applications and websites may not have accurate information for all trips, including service reductions affecting other agencies.
