ORCA cards now compatible with Google Wallet

Android users can now add ORCA cards to their digital wallets, but the projected date for when Apple users can do the same has yet to be released.

Welcome to the digital age, Seattle-area transit users — ORCA cards can now be added to Google Wallet.

The new feature allows riders with Android phones to add the transit pass to their phone’s wallet to do things like pay for trips, view transactions, add funds to their account, and see trip history within the Google Wallet app.

To add the card, Android users need to:

  1. Open the Google Wallet app.
  2. Click “Add to Wallet.”
  3. Click “Transit Pass.”
  4. Look for ORCA.

Riders will then be able to tap their Android phones to the readers for the King County Metro, Sound Transit, Washington State Ferries, Community Transit, Everett Transit, Pierce Transit, and Kitsap Transit.
Apple users will have to wait a bit longer for the feature. No date has been announced for when ORCA cards will be compatible with Apple Wallet.
