Using Clipper on County Connection

You can use Clipper on all County Connection regular and express fixed routes except routes 250 and 260 and the Alamo Creek Shuttle.

Clipper automatically figures out the cost of your ride, including all discounts and transfers. See Fares and passes for more information on the types of value available.

If you are paying for your ride with cash value, you must have a minimum balance of $1.75 on an adult or Youth Clipper card or 75 cents on a Senior or RTC Clipper card.

To use Clipper on County Connection, locate the Clipper card reader on the bus. Tag your card by holding it flat against the Clipper logo on the reader, and wait for the beep and green light. The card reader either will verify that you have a valid pass and display the expiration date or will deduct the cash value fare and show your remaining balance.

If your card balance is low, the reader will beep twice and display a yellow light. You can still board the bus, but you will need to add value to your card before your next trip. If you do not have enough value on your card, the reader will beep three times and display a red light, and you will not be able to pay your fare with Clipper.
