*Free Fares for Youth
WTA's Board of Directors authorized free fares for youth. Youth are riders age 17 and under, or currently enrolled in high school.
All youth ride free. High school students will need to present a TouchPass Youth Card, which we will provide free of charge. Youth TouchPass cards are available at downtown’s Bellingham Station. You’ll need to bring proof of age, or of enrollment in high school.
For all youth not yet in high school, you are welcome to just step on and ride. No TouchPass Card or other pass is needed.
Some notes about fares:
- Reduced fares are for seniors, veterans and riders with disabilities. Click here for more information.
