Public Transportation - Summer Youth Transit Pass Pilot Program

WSDOT's Public Transportation Division, as directed in the state transportation budget, is providing $485,000 to King County Metro for a pilot program that provides students with low incomes in the Highline, Tukwila and Lake Washington school districts an ORCA transit pass during summer vacation. Students use the transit pass to commute to work or fulfill other responsibilities. In addition, King County will provide support to other school districts in the county who are interested in implementing similar programs for students.
