ORCA Opportunity

The ORCA Opportunity launched in August 2018. The initial launch provided ORCA cards to high school and middle school students enrolled in Seattle Public Schools. In June 2019, the ORCA Opportunity program will launch a new pilot serving low-income tenants in pre-selected SHA properties. 

Early Success

Students enrolled in ORCA Opportunity have taken 2.4 million trips and saved more than $255 on transit this school year. The ORCA cards allow students to commute safely to school, participate in activities, and secure employment.
