The Transit Incentives Program offers you tickets for eight free rides on King County Metro Transit. King County residents receive an order form when they renew their vehicle tabs. The program begins with June, 2012 tab renewals and will continue through May, 2014 tab renewals.
Each household in King County that registers at least one vehicle per year during the two-year life of the program is eligible for this offer.
These tickets put the entire Metro bus system to work for you. Choose from more than 200 routes, thousands of bus stops, 130 park-and-ride lots and garages, and 13 transit centers—all designed to make public transportation accessible and convenient to use. Have a bike? Use a mobility device? Traveling with children? Visit Metro’s How to Ride page to find information on these topics and more! Our accommodations for a range of rider needs are one reason why Metro has become one of the most popular—and greenest—transit agencies in the nation.
When you ride Metro, you help reduce congestion and pollution, and improve the quality of life for everyone in our community. You may also be surprised by how much money you can save when you ride the bus and leave your car at home!
Tickets will expire approximately 90 to 120 days from when you receive them, so we encourage you to start putting them to use as soon as possible.
And remember, when the tickets are gone, it’s easy to keep riding with an ORCA card. This reusable "smart" card works on all public transportation systems in the region. Go to www.orcacard.com to learn more about the benefits of ORCA.

Congestion Reduction Charge
The congestion reduction charge is an annual $20 fee that King County residents pay when they renew a vehicle registration. It will be collected for two years, from June 1, 2012 through May 2014.
The charge helps fund Metro Transit, enabling Metro to maintain the current overall level of bus service and helping reduce traffic congestion. Read here.
