The Future of Clipper

It's not too late to share your opinions.

We appreciate your input.

In the spring, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and its transit agency partners invited you to share what you wanted in the next generation of Clipper through an online survey and public comments. We also conducted focus groups and stakeholder interviews. Results from these activities will be available here in fall 2017. In the meantime, you can continue to share what you would like in the future of Clipper via email at or voicemail at 415.778.6680.

We started seeking feedback in 2014, including through an earlier survey. Thanks to those who provided input, we could start to envision improvements such as:

Mobile icon

Different ways to pay: Use Clipper cards PLUS other options like mobile devices.

Family icon

More convenient account management: Manage all your family’s transit fare payments in one online account.

parking icon

Lots more transportation uses: Use Clipper for other transportation services such as parking at transit stations, bike sharing and paratransit.

We look forward to incorporating your recent feedback into our continued planning for Clipper.
