Clipper and Employee Transit Benefit Programs

Receive transit benefits at work? Use them with Clipper! Save money—sometimes hundreds of dollars a year—while enjoying the easy convenience of Clipper.

If you have a Clipper card, it's easy to use it with your transit benefits. If you don't have a card, ask your benefits administrator about how to get one.

Save even more!

  • BART riders can use a transit benefit debit card to set up automatic reloading of high—value discount tickets with no additional fee—Clipper is the easiest way to get this additional discount.

  • SF Bay Ferry riders can get significant discounts by using Clipper instead of single-ride tickets.


If you have a commuter debit card:
Add value to your Clipper card online, at transit agency ticket machines or offices, at Clipper Add Value machines or Customer Service Centers, or MyTransitPlus locations (these charge a debit card fee). Not accepted at retailers.

You can use your commuter debit card to set up Autoload for automatic reloading, but Clipper recommends you set up a regular credit card as a backup payment card in your account. If funds are not available on your transit benefit card, Clipper will charge your backup card-you will get your order, and your Clipper card will not be blocked due to insufficient funds.

If you get transit vouchers:
Load passes and/or cash value onto your Clipper card at any participating Clipper retailer, transit agency ticket office or Clipper Customer Service Center. Find Clipper locations here. We suggest calling retailers ahead to confirm that they accept your type of voucher.

If you have direct load:
Follow your benefit provider's instructions in your online transit benefit account to set up automatic loading of value to your Clipper card.
