Reduced fare information

The easiest way to pay is with an ORCA card. Riders with disabilities can use a Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP) to get discounted fares on regional transit services, including Community Transit buses, Sound Transit trains, Link light rail, Washington State Ferries, and more. Medicare card holders can also get an RRFP. Riders must use an ORCA card to get the discounted fare.

Get a RRFP ORCA card

  • Reduced rates for ORCA card users living with disabilities.
  • Tap your ORCA card or pay with cash. If paying with cash, please use exact change.
  • Riders taking a Swift bus route can also pay with a credit or debit card at the station kiosk. 
  • DART paratransit tickets and passes can be purchased online, in person at the Ride Store, or by calling 425-348-2350.
