What's in
Clipper's future?

Help us decide.

Take the new survey!

Tell us more about how YOU would like to use Clipper.

Since 2014, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and its transit agency partners have invited the public to share what they would like in the next generation of Clipper through surveys, focus groups, stakeholder interviews and public meetings, as well as voicemails and emails.

We are again actively seeking your feedback to further guide the development of the next-generation Clipper system. Tell us more by responding to our newest survey.

MTC and its transit agency partners plan to launch the next generation of Clipper by 2020.

We’ve incorporated your input so far.

Your feedback is already making a difference in defining the next-generation Clipper system. A few improvements we envision include:


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.

Stay tuned for more.

We will post the results of this online survey and offer additional opportunities to voice your opinions on the next-generation Clipper system. You can also always share your Clipper experiences and what you’d like to see in the future, via email at feedback@futureoflicpper.com or via voicemail at 415.778.6680.
