Regular fares apply for all Sound Transit services. Rail riders can avoid post-game ticket vending machine lines by purchasing a Day Pass at their originating station. One-way tickets and Day Passes can also be purchased with the Transit GO Ticket app.
Another way to skip lines at ticket vending machines is by getting an ORCA card. Cards only cost $3 for adults, plus whatever amount a rider chooses to load in the card’s E-purse or the cost of a pass that is good for unlimited transit trips.
ORCA LIFT fares are available for low-income adult passengers. Regional Reduced Fare permit holders are seniors age 65+ and riders with disabilities.
ORCA works on trains, buses and ferries throughout the region. More information is available at www.myORCA.com.
A few additional reminders for a smoother trip:
- Riders using an ORCA card should remember to tap on and off at Sounder and Link stations.
- Parking is available at all Sounder stations, as well as the Angle Lake, Tukwila International Boulevard and Northgate Link light rail stations.
