QFC offers ORCA regional transit cards
May 10, 2011
Transit commuters can now pick up ORCA passes when they get their milk and eggs.
QFC, including the Issaquah-area stores, recently joined the retail locations offering ORCA, or One Regional Card for All.
ORCA is a collaboration among the transit systems in King, Kitsap, Snohomish and Pierce counties.
Commuters use ORCA cards on more than 250,000 trips each weekday and 49 percent of all transit trips in the region. The smart card has replaced about 300 transportation passes, tickets and transfers.
Customers can also order ORCA cards online at www.orcacard.com, by calling 1-888-988-6722 toll free, by visiting a transit agency customer service office or get them at a fare vending machine.
