No, a Regional Day Pass is only valid for one rider.

Is there a discounted rate for children and reduced fare passengers?

No, the pilot program is only for adult riders.

Is the Regional Day Pass a good value?

It could be depending on how much you’ll use public transportation.

If you’re staying near the airport and go to downtown Seattle for dinner, a round-trip on the Central Link light rail is $5.50.

If that’s the only public transportation you’re using for the day, it doesn’t make sense to buy a day pass.  But if you’re going sightseeing and want to explore areas outside of downtown Seattle, buying a day pass could be worth it.
