Use Clipper® and Show Your Pride

Ride Transit to Pride Events This Month and All Year Long
Joey Kotfica

If you are heading to the San Francisco Pride Parade and Celebration on June 30th – or any other events for Pride Month – use Clipper® to make getting around a breeze.

Clipper, the Bay Area’s all-in-one transit card, is accepted on all of the Bay Area’s more than 20 transit agencies and is the fastest way to pay. Take the train, bus or ferry, and just tap and go!

You can pre-load Clipper funds on your mobile phone or smart watch, or go old school and stick with the classic plastic Clipper card.

Visit for more information about getting and using Clipper.

Clipper is available for mobile phones through either Apple Pay or Google Pay. Clipper will waive the standard $3 new-card fee for customers who choose Clipper on their phone. (A $3 fee will be charged to customers who purchase a new plastic Clipper card.) 

Adding a Clipper card to Google Pay, to an Apple iPhone 8 or later, or to an Apple Watch Series 3 or later is easy. Apple customers can add the Clipper card directly through Apple Wallet and load cash value with Apple Pay anytime, anywhere. 

Customers with Android systems must have devices with an NFC chip. Phones running Android 5 or later or smart watches running Wear OS 2+ can add the Clipper card directly through Google Pay and load cash value anytime, anywhere.

MTC is the transportation planning, funding and coordinating agency for the nine-county Area. MTC operates the Clipper system on behalf of the region’s transit agencies.
