Using Clipper on BART
Clipper is available to all BART customers. Whether you use a High Value Discount (HVD) ticket or pay as you go, Clipper can be used to pay your fare on BART. Clipper can also be used to pay for parking on BART. Sign up for a parking account or link your Clipper card to an EZ Rider parking account by visiting https://ezrider.bart.gov/ezrider/.
All BART ticket vending machines can now add cash value to Clipper cards. BART's ticket machines accept cash, credit and debit cards as payment. Please note that Clipper is not available on the BART Add Fare Machines which are located inside the paid area.
To use Clipper on BART, locate the Clipper sensor disk on the top of the fare gate or on the side of the accessible fare gate. Tag your card by holding the card flat to the Clipper logo on the sensor disk until "OK" displays and the fare gate opens. When exiting, your remaining balance will also be displayed. You will tag your card each time you enter and exit the fare gates.
Please note: even if the fare gate is open when you approach, make sure to tag your card before entering.
