  2. Punch cards and passes can be ordered over the phone by calling customer service with a debit/credit card. They will then be sent through the mail.
  3. Pass by mail will also be an option. A rider can either download the form from our website or call customer service to have one mailed to them. They can then send in the form with a check ordering what they need. To download the form CLICK HERE
  4. Skagit Transit also has a new electronic fare system called “TouchPass.” This system allows riders to purchase their fares through a website or using a smartphone app. Those fares are instantly available. Please visit our website for more details. 

      Please contact Customer Service before purchasing any passes if you set up your own TouchPass account, so that we can enable you to purchase Paratransit passes for yourself.

Customer Service can be reached at 360-757-8801


We are strongly encouraging our riders to take advantage of the TouchPass system. It is very convenient and it is also “contact-free” for those paratransit clients who are concerned with the COVID-19 exposure riding our vehicles. Each vehicle will have an electronic reader box. Riders can use either a smartcard or a smartphone app that the electronic box can read from a short distance to show that they have paid the fare. This system will minimize any contact for our riders on our vehicles.

You can also load funds onto the TouchPass card at Customer Service if you would like to pay cash for your rides, but do not want to carry cash on your person.

TouchPass fares are instantly available and it is a great way to purchase fares for a family member.
