If you already have an adult Clipper card and are becoming a senior, please see the Clipper card discount FAQ.
Whether you like to ride Muni with an unlimited-ride monthly pass or pay for each ride with cash, the best way to do either is with a Senior Clipper card. Once you have your Clipper card, you may load a Muni Senior monthly pass and/or fare products of other transit operators as well as cash value. Then, whenever you tap your Senior Clipper card to a Clipper reader, the system will automatically apply the relevant discounts.
The Clipper card also has balance protection. If you ever lose your card and report it to the Clipper Service Bureau (877.878.8883), you will receive a replacement card with the product or value you had on the card at the time you reported it lost.
See below for how seniors (65+) can get a special Clipper card which will automatically provide discounts on Muni service. For more information about Clipper and to learn about the many ways you can load your card, go to It’s Time to Switch.
