ORCA LIFT is a transit fare payment card that allows customers to pay the low-income fare on all agencies that offer it as a fare category. For Everett Transit, the low-income fare is $1. The card is not a flash pass, and customers have to have funds on the ORCA LIFT card in order to pay the low-income fare.
ORCA LIFT cards are issued in Everett through the DSHS office at 840 N. Broadway. You must provide income and identification documents, and complete the benefits application.
If you already receive benefits from one of the follow programs, you may use that information to verify your income. Eligible programs include:
Whether you are employed or not, the following documents are accepted for income verification:
** To qualify, a person's gross household income (before taxes are taken out) must be no more than 200 percent of the federal poverty level as established by the U.S. Health and Human Services Department. Median Monthly Income Chart
