You can use cash value on a Clipper card. Adult customers receive a discount for using Clipper instead of cash on all routes except short hops. Passengers with a Youth, Senior or RTC Clipper card receive the same 50 percent discount they do when paying with cash. For a complete list of fares, visit SF Bay Ferry.

Minimum Balance

You must have a minimum balance of $5.40 on an adult card or $3.60 on a Youth, Senior or RTC Clipper card.


Clipper automatically calculates transfer discounts when you transfer between SF Bay Ferry and AC Transit, Muni or SolTrans. You must tag off at a card reader when you exit the ferry to receive a discount.
