Clipper Card, the new card in town, is quickly making obsolete older forms of muni payment. Starting in November, anyone wantingÂ a “Type A” fast pass will need to replace their old paper card with a clipper card. I got my clipper card a few months ago and I have to say that as an occasional muni rider, I’ve found it very handy to keep stashed in my wallet. No longer do I need to worry about whether or not I have exact change, and it also means I don’t have to board from the front door of the train when the line is 6 people deep.
And while it might be entirely more practical, it probably signals the end of muni fast pass art:
From SFMTA, here are the various types of passes available:
- Adult “A” Fast PassÂ®, $70. Also valid for BART trips entirely within San Francisco only during the month shown on the pass. Valid for customers ages 18-64.

- Note: There is a Senior/Disabled Pilot Pass Program to test a pass that would also be valid on BART within San Francisco. This Pass is not currently available on the RTC Discount Photo ID Card. Please continue to use the paper “P” pass. ID required.
