Sound Transit updates fares for some riders in 2011
December 28, 2010
Sound Transit rolls out reduced fares for seniors and disabled riders Jan. 1.
Eligible riders on Sound Transit buses and light rail trains pay the same 75-cent flat fare for in-county trips.
Under the existing system, Regional Reduced Fare Permit holders pay 75 cents for one-zone and $1.25 for two-zone ST Express bus rides, and 75 cents to $1.25 per trip on Link light rail trains. The flat rate replaces the tiered structure.
Sound Transit is changing regional reduced fares to match King County Metro Transit fare changes. Metro also puts the changes in effect Jan. 1.
Sound Transit fares for Sounder commuter rail and adult, youth, and inter-county reduced fare riders on Central Link and ST Express buses remain unchanged.
