Wed., July 22 is the last day students can purchase ORCA transit cards at a discount through Shoreline. If you still haven’t gotten yours this quarter, head to the Cashier’s Office windows on the second floor of the FOSS (5000) building. Bring payment, photo ID and proof of registration for summer quarter. ORCA cards for fall quarter will go on sale at the start of the quarter.
ORCA cards, the regional transit pass, are available to most students at Shoreline Community College. Shoreline’s ORCA card program is simple:
- For $125, a registered student can buy a $200 ORCA ePurse card.
- The student receives an ORCA card that is immediately usable for as long as there is still money on it.
- The $75 difference is covered by a subsidy funded by the SCOF fee.
An ORCA card is the equivalent of having cash that can be used on all Community Transit, Everett Transit, King County Metro Transit, Kitsap Transit, Pierce Transit, Sound Transit and Washington State Ferries.
