Dear Community Organization,
As an organization that works in local communities, you understand the importance of providing affordable public transit for low-income workers and families who need it most.
That’s why we are excited to announce the expansion of Clipper START, a pilot program that offers single-ride discounts of up to 50% on major Bay Area transit systems for eligible riders. Bay Area residents age 19-64 who meet certain income requirements can apply for the program.
Originally only on four transit agencies, the new and expanded program offers single-ride discounts including:
- 50% off: Caltrain, Golden Gate Transit and Ferry, Marin Transit, Muni, SamTrans, San Francisco Bay Ferry, SMART
- 20% off: AC Transit, BART, City Coach, County Connection, FAST, Petaluma Transit, Santa Rosa CityBus, SolTrans, Sonoma County Transit, Tri Delta Transit, Union City Transit, Vine, WestCAT, Wheels
Clipper START can reduce travel costs for those individuals who need it most— that’s why we’re asking you to get the word out and tell people about Clipper START! Visit clipperstartcard.com to see the online application and learn about the program.
You can order brochures and posters (in 2 sizes) to display and share with your clients. They are available in four languages: English, Spanish, Chinese and Tagalog. The brochures contain the paper version of the application.
Thank you for supporting Bay Area communities!
