The Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP) gives riders ages 65+, riders with disabilities, and Medicare card holders reduced fares on participating transit agencies in the Puget Sound area.

Adding fares to your ORCA card

There is no card fee for the first ORCA Senior RRFP card, and replacement cards are just $3.00 each.

Your ORCA Senior RRFP card gives you a reduced fare on certain transit systems in the Puget Sound region. ORCA Senior RRFP cards will also work on other ORCA transit agencies that don’t offer a reduced fare, but you’ll need to pay the full fare.
