Community Transit local fares apply on all trips within Snohomish County.
Community Transit commuter fares to Seattle are based on distance. Customers who board "North/East" of Everett pay a higher fare for commutes into Seattle than customers who board in the "South/Everett" area.
If you ride a commuter route within Snohomish County only you are eligible to pay local fare for that trip, but be sure to notify the driver before tapping your ORCA card - otherwise the farebox will automatically charge the commuter rate.
|Service Category|| Adult |

|Reduced Fare|| Monthly Pass |
Adult /Youth /Reduced Fare
|Local||$2.00||$1.50||$1.00||$72 / $54 / $36|
|Commuter-South/Everett||$4.00||$3.00||$2.00||$144 / $108 / $72|
|Commuter- North/East*||$5.25||$4.00||$2.50||$189 / $144 / $90|
* Applies on Routes 421, 422, 424, 425, 821 when travelling to/from Seattle and Lake Stevens, Marysville, Monroe, Snohomish or Stanwood. Notify the driver if travelling only between Seattle and Lynnwood Transit Center to be charged the "South/Everett" fare.
Fares are subject to change.
Up to two children age 5 and under can ride free when a person responsible for them pays either a full or reduced fare for themselves. Youth between six years of age and senior year of high school qualify for a youth fare. High school students may be asked to show identification to receive youth fares.
To purchase a youth fare ORCA card, the youth or their parent or guardian must go in person to the RideStore at Lynnwood Transit Center or to Everett Station and bring proof of age or student status.
People age 65 and older, people with disabilities and Medicare card holders are eligible for a reduced fare provided they show a Regional Reduced Fare Permit. The permit entitles you to a discounted ride on regular bus routes throughout the Puget Sound region and on Washington State Ferries. It also allows for a personal care attendant to ride free when traveling with a disabled customer.
Permits have a one-time cost of $3 and require a completed application or proof of age. Permit may be purchased at the RideStore at Lynnwood Transit Center or at Everett Station. For more information, see our ORCA Outlets page or call the RideStore at (425) 348-2350.
All permits are also ORCA cards that can be loaded with pre-paid fare (E-purse) or a monthly pass. If you have an older, non-ORCA Regional Reduced Fare Permit, you can exchange valid permits for a new Regional Reduced Fare card at no charge by visiting your local transit agency’s customer service office.
Edmonds Community College offers an ORCA-powered EdPass to students, staff and faculty.
The EdPass/ORCA is valid for unlimited rides on all Community Transit buses and DART paratransit vehicles. Users can load E-purse value or a separate monthly pass onto to use the card on other agencys' services.
Central Washington University, Lynnwood Campus, also offers students an ORCA card for unlimited transportation on Community Transit.
The U-PASS, offered through the University of Washington at the Seattle, Bothell and Tacoma campuses, is valid for full fare on Community Transit, King County Metro, Sound Transit and Everett Transit.
Instead of a U-PASS sticker, the new Husky card U-PASS is inside the smart chip in the Husky card.
Cascadia Community College also offers the U-PASS.
The DART paratransit fare is $2. There are no discounts or separate fare categories.
Since ORCA cards are not accepted on Dial-A-Ride-Transportation buses, Community Transit sells DART Paratransit tickets and monthly passes for use by DART customers. In addition to DART services, the DART passes and tickets are good for face value ($2) on all regular Community Transit buses. They are not accepted by any other transit or paratransit agencies. If you are already a DART customer, you can order your tickets online here. Contact the RideStore at Lynnwood Transit Center for assistance: 425-348-2350.
This chart indicates which passes are accepted as fare payment on various transit systems. Passes are accepted at face value, so additional fare may be necessary.
