Can I get a Day Pass on Clipper?

No, the SamTrans Day Pass is not available on Clipper.

I have a Local Monthly Pass, but occasionally need to ride the 292, 397 or KX to and from San Francisco. How do I pay for an upgrade?

Adult riders with a Local Monthly Pass can use the cash value on their Clipper cards to pay an upgrade on routes 292, 397 and KX when traveling out of San Francisco. You cannot pay fare upgrades to the driver. If you do not have enough cash value on your Clipper card to pay the upgrade fee, you will be required to pay the entire cost of the ride with cash. You do not have to pay an upgrade with a Local Monthly Pass when traveling to San Francisco.

I ride the KX to San Francisco. Do I have to tag again when I get off the bus in San Francisco?

No, you do not need to tag off in San Francisco as of January 10, 2016.
