Frequently Asked Questions
Do youth ride free on all buses?
Most transit agencies in the state are offering the Free Youth Transit Pass. We encourage you to visit their websites for more information.
How do I get a Free Youth Transit Pass?
Parents, visit myORCA.com to sign up for an account and order a Youth ORCA card for free. Proof of the child’s name and age are required, like a student ID, state ID, or birth certificate. You will be sent an ORCA card to use as a Free Youth Transit Pass on Everett Transit.
I already have an ORCA card, do I need a new one?
If you have a Youth ORCA card, keep it! You are set up and ready to go.
What if I have money on my current Youth ORCA card?
Once you create an account and register your card at myORCA.com, you can transfer funds to other cards on your account, request a refund, or save it! Your ORCA card funds do not expire.
What if my current Youth ORCA card has an expiration date on it?
If you received a card from a school or at an outreach event, it may expire on 6-30-23. If your 19th birthday is after that, bring your ID to Everett Transit Customer Service to have it extended. If no action is taken, it will automatically become an adult card on July 1, 2023.
