Community Transit


Fares & Passes

Community Transit local fares apply on all trips within Snohomish County.

Community Transit commuter fares to and from Seattle are based on distance. Customers who board or are traveling "North/East" of Everett pay a higher fare for commutes into Seattle than customers who board or are traveling to 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.

Likewise, if you board a commuter bus in Seattle, and get off within Seattle, you will pay a commuter fare.

Community Transit does not give transfers to cash customers.  Paper transfers have been replaced by ORCA cards. ORCA gives you transfer credit for two hours after you first tap your card.

If you pay with cash and take more than one bus or train to get to your destination, you will have to pay full fare each time you board.

With ORCA, your transfer credit is automatically calculated based on the fare of your first trip. Simply tap your card on the second bus. If the next trip you take has a higher fare, the ORCA reader will display the difference and either deduct it from the  "E-purse" value on your card or prompt you to pay the amount in cash.

King County Metro tickets and transfers are good on Metro buses only. Community Transit does not accept Metro tickets or transfers. If you use both systems, consider getting an ORCA card.
