Healthy Transit: Contactless Payment

Mandi Renshaw

SolTrans accepts Clipper and Token Transit as contactless payment options.

There are many ways to pay your bus fare, SolTrans continues to accept paper passes, exact cash fare, Clipper Cards, and the Token Transit App. To reduce surface touch points on buses SolTrans strongly recommends using cash free or contactless payment fare options like Clipper and the Token Transit App.

Clipper is regional an all-in-one transit card that keeps track of any passes and cash value that you load onto it, while applying all applicable fares, discounts, and transfer rules. You may use Clipper on many public transit services all over the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Francisco Bay Ferry and BART. Simply tag your card on the Clipper Card reader and continue boarding while maintaining a safe distance from the operator and other passengers.

Token Transit is SolTrans’ first mobile App where passengers can purchase any ticket or pass available on the fare table and show the active pass to the operator and ride. Token Transit also allows passengers to send a pass to anyone with a smartphone. And best of all Token Transit allows for fare capping, passengers can purchase as many one way trips as they like and when the fares add up to the cost of a pass, the app will automatically upgrade you to the pass.  You can ride your way to a Day Pass or a 31-Day Pass, without the upfront costs.

Simply show your active pass on your phone to the bus operator or tag your Clipper Card when you board, no need to exchange any cash or touch the onboard fare collection machine then find a socially distanced seat with your mask on and ride away.

Travel safely with contactless payment options like these, Clipper and Token Transit make boarding faster, eliminates the need to carry exact change and keep you safe while riding our buses.
