New Orca cards are available to transit riders for free until February 28, 2021.

All transit agencies have agreed to waive the $5 fee for new cards to encourage the use of contactless payments and reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

All Orca cards can be preloaded and used to pay fares on transit. They reduce the need to use cash and can be used for street cars, buses, the Link Light Rail, Sounder Train, State Ferry, Fast Ferry, and water taxis.

Orca cards can be purchased by calling Orca customer service at 888-988-6722, by visiting a store that sells Orca cards, Orca ticket machines, or by filling in and mailing an Orca card order form.
