Fares & Passes

Free Youth Transit Pass [Girl on bus - Banner]

Here at Everett Transit, we offer several single trip fare options and monthly passes to help customers get the most out of transit. While cash fare payment is accepted on all Everett Transit buses, we want our customers to get the most out of their fare payment and we encourage our customers to sign up for and use an ORCA card.

ORCA Card is a regional transit pass that allows customers to use a single method for fare payment and includes transfer windows. The ORCA card can be used from Snohomish County to Pierce County, and across the water to Kitsap County. 

A few important things to know:

  • Monthly Pass pricing is for ORCA card customers
  • Monthly Passes are are based on 18 round-trips per month
    The more you use it, the more you save!
  • Youth, 18 and under, now ride free on Everett Transit
    Youth 13 - 18 are encouraged to sign up for and use a Free Youth Transit Pass
