State and County Agencies
Reduced Fare ORCA Card
Fill out the reduced fare application and get it signed by a doctor. Make sure to request at PCA (personal care attendant) designation. Make sure to bring your student to the ride store to obtain the card, which will have a photo of the student. We strongly recommend getting a reduced fare ORCA card with a PCA designation as this allows a staff (or family) member to travel on the bus for free. With a reduced fare ORCA card, the student will pay much less for the bus and will get free transfers between buses.
