Buy or revalue adult ORCA Cards while you shop
You may purchase ORCA cards while shopping at participating retail stores. With more places to buy ORCA cards in person, especially during evenings and weekends, it's more convenient than ever to switch from cash to an ORCA card. In Pierce County, stop by one of the stores listed below to purchase an Adult card, or reload E-purse value on the ORCA card you already have. Changes and improvements are happening at retail stores around the region. To learn about changes starting in October 2022, visit info.myorca.com/retail/
Here are the details:
- ORCA cards sold at retail stores are full-fare adult cards (for ages 19-64)
- each card costs $3
- you may add E-purse value to your card at the same time, so your fare is available for riding. You may still bring any type of ORCA card into participating retailers to add E-purse value to them.
- Before heading to a retail outlet, be sure to determine how much E-purse value you would like to load to your card. Later, you may convert your E-purse value to a transit pass online at myORCA.com, through the myORCA app, at ticket vending machines, or at an ORCA Customer Service office. There are many different passes available. If you have questions, please call ORCA Customer Service at 888.988.6722.
- Once your ORCA card has been loaded, check your receipt before leaving the register. Be sure that the E-purse amount you requested has been correctly added to your card.
ORCA Transition Update: Who really needs a new card?
We know the new cards are cool, but who needs to get a new one right away? It's important to remember that all classic ORCA cards (standard blue, ORCA LIFT, and all Regional Reduced Fare Permits) will continue to work like normal to board transit and add value. The only change to be aware of is Safeway and Albertsons stores will stop reloading the classic cards by the beginning of December 2022.
This means customers that rely on those stores for reloading value need to replace their cards, or reload at a QFC or Fred Meyer store or other location. More information on how to do so can be found here: https://info.myorca.com/retail/
