Low-Cost Annual Orca Pass for Market Employees 

Effective August 1, 2017, the PDA will end the ORCA Business Passport Card program we’ve offered to Market community members. We understand the popularity of this program, but in light of budget realities, the PDA is not in a position to continue ongoing subsidies.

We invite Market business owners to contact Commute Seattle at 206.613.3242 for public transportation solutions. Individuals can visit or call 888.988.6722 for ORCA Card pricing. The ORCA Lift program offers income qualified riders reduced fares in King County (visit or call 206.553.3000 for more information).  We have returned Early Bird pricing to The Market Parking Garages for $15 every day for those who enter by 9 a.m. and leave before 9 p.m.

For more information and to sign up for the ORCA Pass, contact: Art Kuniyuki at the PDA, 206.774.5226.
