*** Press Release ***

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which operates the Municipal Railway (Muni), today announced that the deadline for Muni Youth and Senior discount monthly pass customers to switch to Clipper has been extended from January to May in order to provide additional opportunities for Senior and Youth pass customers to apply for and receive their Clipper cards. Senior and Youth Muni customers must begin purchasing their passes on Clipper cards by the end of May. Clipper monthly pass sales begin the 17th of each month.

In March, April and May Muni Senior and Youth discount monthly paper pass customers will receive additional information about the switch to Clipper when they purchase their monthly passes. Ongoing special outreach to senior and youth will continue by building on previous presentations made at more than 150 community events.

The SFMTA has issued nearly 25,000 Muni Senior Clipper cards and 9,000 Youth cards. Senior or youth customers who have already obtained their Clipper card are encouraged to use any of the following outlets to either purchase their monthly pass or to add cash value to their card:

  • Muni Ticket Vending Machines in the nine Muni Metro Stations
  • Local Clipper retailers, which can be found at
  • Online at
  • By Phone: Call Clipper Customer Service at (877) 878.8883

Muni Adult “A” Fast Pass and Regional Transit Connection customers led the Muni transition to Clipper in November. Muni Adult “M” Fast Pass customers will switch in March. In December, there were more than four million Muni customer boardings using a Clipper or TransLink card. This represents a nearly 500 percent increase since June (the monthClipper was launched).
