    Some Seattleites who live in public housing will soon have access to free transit passes as part of a one-year, $1 million pilot program.

    Mayor Jenny Durkan announced in February that her administration would offer some 1,500 Seattle Housing Authority residents the free unlimited ORCA passes.

    The Seattle Times reported Friday the authority has started helping people sign up for them.

    To qualify, residents must be between 19 and 64, live within the Seattle Transportation Benefit District and earn less than 30% of the area median income (or about $23,000 for a single person and $30,000 for a family of three)
    They need it to get to work at Boeing, Nintendo, Alaska Airline, Cray.

    Programs like this are meant to be for Seniors and people with disabilities.

    The bad part is people who just want to sit on their ass their whole lives and expect someone else to give them everything.
    God knows I know too many like this already; idiots who suck on a bong all day, guys who want to stay drunk 24/ 7, people who never grew and still think like kids expecting someone else to do everything for them.

    Many of them who live in public housing,at least the state where i live are able to afford a Mercedes. I wonder how those on foodstamps are able to afford luxury cars like those. I saw on the news a while back,many luxury cars at section 8 housing projects.

    My office gives bus passes to 2 groups of people: parents participating in a treatment plan to get their kids back, so they can go to their counseling, parenting classes, drug screens, etc. The other group is for teens, so they can get to school and to their part time jobs.

    They lure unsuspecting furies into the back of their luxury vans, skin them, and sell the furs.
