Reduced Fare Orca Cards

Is the cost of a bus ride getting you down?

To learn if you might be eligible for reduced ORCA fares, attend an ORCA Reduced Fare and Health Benefit information session 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 4 in Building 8, lower level.

Kent Public Health Outreach Specialist Ted Christie will answer questions on new ORCA discounts that start March 1.

Those who qualify for Washington Apple Medical Health (also called Medicaid) are eligible for the reduced fares. Christie will discuss other ways students can qualify for the discount.

Enrollment is ongoing for Washington Apple Health – sign up any time.

You can also renew or sign up for low-cost private insurance through Healthplanfinder through Feb. 15.
