How to get a Transit Pass


Pierce Transit and other providers offer reduced bus fares for Senior Citizens who are 65 years old or older and to people who have a disability. Electronic "ORCA Cards" are passes that are good on a regional basis - including Pierce Transit. You must show a valid Regional Reduced Fare Permit when paying a reduced senior citizen fare. Permits are $3. Learn about the ORCA card.
