Metro Discount Pass Information

 Orca Lift Metro bus fares increased again this weekend which makes it harder for people to be able to afford the bus. However, there is a new program called ORCA Lift that offers ORCA cards to low income individuals. They get the card for free and can use it just like an ORCA card, but it only charges 50% of the regular price. So they can take the bus for $1.50 any time. 

 

You have to qualify and get the card in person but they have them in a number of locations, for example at the Auburn Public Health Center and at Greenriver CC.
