Default Planning road trip to Seattle area.

Volks:

I am in the very early stages of planning a road trip to Seattle, among other places. I have been searching the internet looking for information about the public transportation system in the Seattle/Tacoma/Puget Sound. It looks like there is a regional system called ORCA that covers a large portion of the area and offers a transport card that offers free transfer from one system to the next. However, I have not been able to find any online maps showing the routes that the various partner systems cover. Is anyone from the Seattle area using this system, how much of the area does it cover, and how much does it cost? I am not planning to leave until July, so I have some time to try and sort this out. Any help would be appreciated.

Dan

Hi,

You seem to be able to look up the local transit maps by going to:
http://metro.kingcounty.gov/tops/bus.../regional.html
You can just click on a region and it will give you the routes for the area. Have you tried that site yet - it should help?

This guide has a fair amount of information, I don't know if the 2010 version is out but don't think much has changed.

Default Thanks for the help!

joelietz:

I looked at that website for an hour and didn't find those maps! Must have been partially asleep so thanks for the direct link. Very helpful.

gxe94:

Lots of good info on your link too! Is there a printed version of this .pdf. It would be very helpful to bring along if there was. Thanks for your help!

Volks:

Anybody else have any input? I'm all ears at this point.

Dan

You should be able to print the .pdf right from your computer when you open it up. Adobe Reader allows you to do that.

Jason:

We will be driving out. This is going to be a family vacation, so we will be making lots of stops along the way. If I do call you, should I get you at the shop or is there a different number that would be better?

Dan
