Look for these new fareboxes on your Muni vehicle starting this week.
They’ve made thousands of Muni rides possible each day. And after more than 25 busy years of transit transactions, our old on-board fare machines are ready to be retired.
So starting this week, we’re introducing new, smarter fareboxes that will dispense a new type of Muni ticket on all Muni vehicles. These will be installed on all Muni vehicles over the course of the year, starting with our longer, 60-foot buses.
For the first time on Muni, the new fare machines will print transaction details on tickets, which will help us keep better track of fare payments and understand how people use Muni. This more secure transaction method will also prevent the theft of Muni transfers and help keep operators safe.
So, what’s new about using Muni’s new fareboxes? Here’s everything you need to know.
