The ORCA card replaces passes and transfers 

Beginning January 1, 2010 all transfers and passes switch to ORCA 

TRANSFERS: Paper transfers will not be issued or accepted by Sound Transit
starting Jan. 1. 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 on Sound Transit buses or trains, and Sound Transit train tickets
will not be accepted by Community Transit, Everett Transit, King County
Metro or Pierce Transit. 

*	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 2 hours. 

Switch to ORCA and get the transfer credit for your connecting bus or train
trip. By using ORCA to pay the fare, your transfer will be automatically
calculated and valid for two hours on any bus or train. 

PASSES: TVMs will issue passes only on ORCA cards. Other passes will be
accepted until they expire.
