Pass and transfer changes beginning Jan 1, 2010
On January 1, 2010 all passes and transfers switch to ORCA. Paper transfers
will not be issued or accepted by Sound Transit beginning January 1, 2010.
Riders using cash instead of an ORCA Card to transfer between buses and
trains will pay the full fare for each leg of their ride.
* ST Express buses will no longer issue paper transfer slips.
* Sounder and Central Link paper tickets will no longer carry any
transfer value for rides on other trains or buses.
* Paper transfers from Metro or Pierce Transit will no longer be
accepted aboard Sound Transit buses or trains, and Sound Transit train
tickets will not be accepted by Community Transit, Everett Transit, Metro,
or Pierce Transit.
* Upgrades at Ticket Vending Machines will no longer be available and
must be paid using your ORCA e-purse.
* Sounder and Link tickets will only be valid between stations printed
on the ticket.
* One-way Sounder and Link tickets will only be valid for two hours
between stations printed on the ticket.
Switch to ORCA and get the transfer credit for your connecting bus or train

calculated and valid for two hours on any bus or train.
