King County Metro bus fares resume Oct. 1

Fares were suspended in March due to COVID-19

King County Metro will resume charging bus fares on Thursday, Oct. 1.

Metro suspended fares on March 21 due to COVID-19.

Fares are $2.75 for an adult and $1.50 for youth. Fares, if riders qualify based on household income and register for an ORCA Lift card, are $1.50 for an adult.

While Metro has added several new safety measures, tapping your ORCA card is the fastest and healthiest way to pay your fare.

Ride safely

In accordance with King County Public Health guidelines, and for the safety of all transit riders and employees, Metro thanks riders for following safety policies and guidelines, including:

• Wearing a mask or face covering is required in public places, on transit vehicles and at transit stops

• Stay home if you are sick

• Maintain 6 feet of distance from others

• Observe and abide by directions provided by posted signs and decals
