Transit Benefit

Transit Pass Benefit

Revised January 2009; Revised June 2010

Pacific Lutheran University supports sustainability initiatives - and efforts to get its employees onto mass transit by subsidizing the cost of an annual transit pass via a PLU ORCA card for all PLU employees with benefits. Employees pay a small portion of the cost of the annual pass each year with the majority of the cost paid for by the university.

ORCA card users can ride the bus or train on any regularly scheduled service with Pierce Transit, Metro Transit, Sound Transit, Community Transit, Everett Transit, Kitsap Transit, Seattle Streetcar, King County Water Taxi, and Kitsap Transit Foot Ferry.

There is no trip limit; however, the card is for the employee's transportation use only. Travel on the card can be work or non-work related.

ORCA cards can be purchased at Campus Concierge. The cards are valid June through May and can be renewed at Campus Concierge each year. A valid PLU ID card is required at the time of purchase or renewal.
