When traveling on express buses crossing county lines (such as the ST 535 to Lynnwood or ST 532 to Everett), the ORCA card reader is automatically set to charge you for the 2-county fare ($3.75).

For those that are new to transit and want to join Eclipse in finding an alternative commute Choose Your Way Bellevue is currently offering a great promotion for new transit users*.
