Get an ORCA card to pay your transit fare on buses, trains and ferries throughout the Puget Sound. Polluted stormwater runoff is the number one source of pollution to Puget Sound and our waterways and transportation is the top greenhouse gas emitter statewide. Toxins from our roads travel to our streams, rivers, and the ocean — impacting the health of wildlife like salmon and orca whales. We call it an “ORCA card” because riding transit reduces pollution, keeping our ecosystems and orca whales healthy!
