Back of ORCA LIFT card displaying expiration date

Is it time to renew your ORCA LIFT Card? Check the date on the back of your card to see when the discounted fare expires.

You can renew online or in person at the locations listed below.

If you have questions or need assistance please call 800-756-5437.

Get where you need to go. Pay a lot less to get there.

Now there's a more affordable way to get to work, school, shopping, day care or anywhere else you need to go. It's ORCA LIFT, a new, reduced transit fare that can help you get more out of your public transportation system. ORCA LIFT cards can be used for Metro buses for only $1.50 per trip, any time of the day.

Learn more from Metro's main ORCA LIFT website.

Once you qualify for the ORCA LIFT program, you'll receive an ORCA LIFT card registered to your name, with the same features every ORCA card has. You can load an E-purse value on your card to pay for trips one at a time, or load a discounted monthly pass that lets you take unlimited trips for an entire month. But what makes ORCA LIFT special is you have all the power and convenience of the ORCA card system at a fraction of the cost.

With the ORCA LIFT card, income-qualified riders can save up to 50 percent or more on:

  • Metro Transit buses
  • Kitsap Transit buses
  • Sound Transit Link light rail
  • Sound Transit Regional Express buses
  • Sounder Trains
  • King County Water Taxi
  • Seattle Streetcar

What to bring to verify your income:

  • If you already are enrolled in Washington Healthplanfinder, Apple Health, Washington Basic Food (EBT) or TANF, the enrollment expert can confirm your eligibility.
  • If you are in another defined benefits program, bring a letter or statement confirming that you're enrolled.
  • Paystubs for the last 30 days, tax returns (for self-employed only) and other documents can be used to verify your income.
  • You may also need to provide proof of household size.
  • See additional details from Metro

To qualify, a person's gross household income (before taxes are taken out) must be no more than 200 percent of the federal poverty level as established by the U.S. Health and Human Services Department as indicated in the table at right

Assistance provided by Public Health outreach workers and community-based partner agencies who also can help with health insurance and other programs.

To replace lost, stolen or damaged LIFT Cards, contact Metro Customer Service at 206-553-3000.
