ORCA for Business

Traveling the Puget Sound region by bus, train and ferry is even easier with ORCA - One Regional Card for All. The ORCA card works like cash or a pass, automatically tracking the value of different fares and transfers so you don't have to.

ORCA_CardReaderThe electronic fare card works for all seven of the major regional transit agencies including Community Transit, Everett Transit, King County Metro Transit, Kitsap Transit, Pierce Transit, Sound Transit, Washington State Ferries)

Now it is easier than ever for businesses to help their employees ride transit. ORCA enables businesses to pick the transit products that best fit their business needs while providing them with tools to make it easier to manage their transportation programs.  There are two great programs for businesses to choose from, Business Passport and Business Choice.

ORCA Business Passport

ORCA Business Passport provides a cost-effective, comprehensive, annual transportation pass program that gives employees choices for their commute.  More than just a bus pass, Business Passport gives every employee at your business access to transit, rail, vanpool and Guaranteed Ride Home service.

What is included in Business Passport?

  • Unlimited rides on six regional transit agencies (Community Transit, Everett Transit, King County Metro, Kitsap Transit, Pierce Transit, and Sound Transit).
  • Unlimited access to the Sounder Commuter Rail, Link Light Rail and the Seattle streetcar.
  • Can include a monthly subsidy towards a vanpool fare on Community Transit, King County Metro, Kitsap Transit and Pierce Transit vans.
  • Guaranteed Ride Home – 6 emergency taxi rides home a year.

ORCA Business Passport allows companies with 5 or more employees to offer multiple commute options to all of their employees for one low price.   If your company has more than 500 employees, then we will work with you to create a customized Passport program.

ORCA Business Choice

ORCA Business Choice provides you with a flexible option for providing your employees with a transit benefit.  With Business Choice you can provide ORCA cards to as few or as many cardholders as you choose and you can load the cards with a variety of product options:

  • A menu of monthly transit passes that provide the service your employees need on seven regional transit agencies.
  • E-purses that allow employees to pay on a per-trip basis.
  • E-vouchers that allow a business to provide a set value that their employees can convert to an e-purse or monthly pass.  If the voucher goes unused for 30 days, the value is refunded to your company.
