We’re taking the next step.
The future of Clipper is here! Our new mobile app is coming—soon you’ll be able manage your Clipper account from your phone. You’ll also be able to use your phone to pay your fares. Launching in 2021, our new app will give you access to the account features you need, plus helpful trip planning tools—all at your fingertips!
Be a Clipper Mobile Tester!
We are looking for volunteers to try out the Clipper mobile app in a pilot program. This is your chance to get a sneak peek at the new app and provide user feedback before it hits prime time!
Some testers will be selected to test specific Clipper app features; while others will be chosen to try out the new payment system.
If you are interested, please submit this short form and we will let you know if you are selected to participate.
The future of Clipper will expand your choices—you can continue to use your plastic Clipper card or pay with your phone.
We’re also continuing to develop other important enhancements to help Clipper evolve into a state-of-the-art system for Bay Area transit users:
- The ability to integrate with other transportation providers, such as paratransit
- More convenient account management features like managing all of your family’s Clipper usage through a single account
While fares are set by individual transit agencies, the new Clipper system will be better able to accommodate fare changes and offer special fare promotions.
