Starting June 1, 2011, fares on Sound Transit Express buses will change. How will the changes affect you?
Currently, trips within King County can be one or two zones depending on whether you cross a fare zone boundary within King County. Trips within Pierce or Snohomish counties are one zone and the one zone adult fare is $2.00. As of June 1st, King County will become one zone and the one zone adult fare will be $2.50.
The current two zone adult fare will no longer exist. Adult trips that cross a county (zone) line will cost $3.50. This is a .50 cent increase from current fares.
One-zone youth fares will increase from $1.00 to $1.25, but the multi-county youth fare will remain the same.
