ORCA Lift Wins VISION 2040 Award

SEATTLE - King County Metro has won a 2017 VISION 2040 Award from the Puget Sound Regional Council for its ORCA Lift program. The awards recognize innovative projects and programs that help ensure a sustainable future as the region grows.

“You have created a program that works,” said Josh Brown, Executive Director of PSRC. “You’ve made it easy for people to sign up and use the transit system seamlessly with all users.”

The ORCA Lift program is a reduced-fare program that increases mobility opportunities for people with low-income.

The award was presented at the King County Public Health Access and Outreach office on October 2.

It is an integrated, long-range vision for the future that lays out a strategy for maintaining a healthy region - promoting the well-being of people and communities, economic vitality, and a healthy environment.
