ORCA Opportunity Program

ORCA cards for the summer of 2018

Students with a Youth ORCA card issued from the City of Seattle will have access to free, unlimited transit with that ORCA card through August 31, 2018. If students need to replace a lost or damaged ORCA card, they can visit one of the City of Seattle Customer Service Centers (except the Downtown location). The first card replacement is $5, all subsequent replacements are $25. All fees must be paid in cash. Students must be present for the transaction and show picture ID.

2018 – 2019 School Year

The 2018 – 2019 School Year will see the transformation of the Youth ORCA program to the ORCA Opportunity Program. Under the new ORCA Opportunity Program all high school students at Seattle Public Schools, income-qualified middle school students at Seattle Public Schools, and Seattle Promise Scholars will be eligible for a free, unlimited 12-month ORCA card.
