ORCA Card Ordering/Register Instructions

Summary: Register your ORCA Card.

Ordering/Register Instructions

The district is no longer managing ORCA cards for students. Metro will be handing all youth ORCA Card requests. Student ORCA cards issued to SPS students in the 2021-22 school year will continue working through 2022-23, even if there is an expiration date printed on the back but students must Register ORCA Cards by June 30, 2023.

If your student does not have an ORCA card or lost their card, they can request an ORCA card or get a replacement card. Learn more on the district website.

While students wait for their cards from Metro, they may simply flash their student ID, to a Metro operator or Sound Transit Fare Ambassador, or if a student does not have a student ID, they may ride without one and will not be denied ridership.
