Transferring from BART to Muni just got easier! You automatically save $0.50 when you transfer from BART to Muni using your adult Clipper card. No more keeping track of multiple transfers for 24 hours!

  • Transfers must occur within an hour.
  • Tag your card to the card reader to receive your discounted fare.
  • Offer good on Muni buses, light rail, and historic streetcars.
  • Fare discounts do not apply to Muni monthly pass customers.
  • This transfer will replace the BART to Muni transfer that allowed for up to two $0.25 discounts within a 24-hour period.

In order to streamline Muni fare policy, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) has eliminated the 10-ride book.

  • The Muni 10-ride book is no longer available for purchase.
  • Autoload of the Muni 10-ride book has also been discontinued.
  • Load $20 of cash value onto your Clipper card for the same traveling convenience.
  • Existing ride books will expire on July 1, 2014 and should be used prior to that time.

Clipper is available for all Muni customers. Customers can add monthly passes, Muni Passports and cash value to their Clipper cards. See the "Fares and Passes" page for more information on the available payment options.

You must have a minimum balance of $1.50 for adult Clipper cards and $0.75 for Senior, Youth and RTC Clipper cards if you are paying for your ride with cash value. No minimum cash value balance is required if you are using a Muni pass.

To use your Clipper card, look for the card reader at the entrance to the bus, the rear door or on the fare gate. Touch your card by holding it flat to the card reader and hold it there until you hear the beep and see the green light. The card reader will display your remaining cash balance or expiration date of your pass.

If you are using your Clipper card to ride a cable car, simply hand your card to the conductor. The conductor will use a hand-held card reader to check your card for a valid monthly pass. If your card does not have a valid pass, the hand-held card reader will deduct the appropriate fare from your card's cash balance. The cable car conductor's hand-held card readers will also load online, phone and Autoload orders.
