The Human Services Bus Ticket Program provides subsidized bus tickets to eligible human service agencies serving persons who are homeless and/or low income.

Agencies can apply for the program through an annual Request for Proposal (RFP) process administered by the Department of Community and Human Services. Starting in program year 2017, awarded agencies pay 10 percent of the value of the tickets, with King County Metro covering the remaining 90 percent of the ticket value.

Learn more about the ORCA LIFT reduced fare card.

  Using ZoomGrants

We use ZoomGrants, to accept applications for the HSBTP's annual request for proposals (RFP). 

Awarded agencies also use ZoomGrants throughout the program year to submit required post-award documents and reports.
