Clipper® Cards to Be Sold at VTA Light Rail Platforms


Coming soon, you’ll be able to buy a Clipper Card at VTA light rail stations. (Adult Clipper Cards only. Youth and senior clipper cards require proof of age and are only available at previously existing locations)

VTA is in the process of retrofitting all Ticket Vending Machines (TVM) on light rail platforms to dispense $3 Clippers cards. The work is in progress through the end of the year. 

The Clipper card is a reloadable, contactless smart card used for electronic transit fare payment at 22 public transit services throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Passengers will be able to simultaneously purchase and load value onto the card in the same transaction.  Clipper cards purchased at light rail TVMs are the same one-time fee of $3. Fare value is a separate cost.

As always, Clipper Cards are still available at the following locations:
