Community Transit


Fares & Passes

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-- just be sure to notify the driver before tapping your ORCA card - otherwise the farebox will automatically charge the commuter rate.

You can read our Fare Policy here.

Fare Increase July 1

To help keep revenues in line with expenses, Community Transit will raise fares 25 cents on all adult local and commuter bus trips, as well as all DART paratransit trips. Reduced fare, vanpool and youth fares will not change. This increase will take effect on July 1.

Other Passes

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.

DART Paratransit

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.
