Clipper is available to SamTrans customers. Whether you use a Monthly Pass, or pay as you go, Clipper can be used to pay your fare on SamTrans.

To use Clipper on SamTrans, locate the Clipper card reader at the front of the bus. Tag your card by holding it to the Clipper logo on the reader, making sure to hold the card flat. Wait for the beep and the green light. At this time, your remaining balance, or the expiration date of your pass will be displayed on the card reader. Lift the card and continue to your seat.

Please note: Customers traveling northbound to San Francisco on Route KX must tag their cards when they enter and again when they exit the bus in San Francisco.
