Student ORCA Cards

ORCA cards are distributed at the beginning of the school year. Newly enrolled students will have their card delivered to the school’s main office 1-2 weeks after they start classes.  

To receive an ORCA card, please fill out and submit the ORCA card Conditions of Use form

Students and parents should review the form to understand the expectations for using an ORCA card on public transportation.

Visit the Seattle Public Schools Orca Card Information webpage for updates, eligibility, where you can use your ORCA card, ordering a replacement card, ORCA Youth Opportunity Program, and FAQs.

Metro Reminders

Always wear a mask while riding and waiting at the bus stop. The mask should fit above your nose, below your chin, and snugly against your face.

Allow extra time to reach school and when leaving school. Some bus trips might be too full to carry more riders because of required physical distancing. Metro is working to add bus service where possible.

Your safety is our top priority. Metro requires masks, has passenger limits and physical distancing, disinfects daily, encourages contact-less payment, and has upgraded air filters on all buses.
