BART Will no Longer Accept Paper Tickets as of November 30, 2023

South San Francisco, CA  November 5, 2023 by BART

It is an end of an era.

Beginning November 30, BART will no longer accept paper tickets.
Paper ticket money can’t be transferred to Bay Area Clipper but we offer refunds for value greater than $1:
We are making way for our new fare gates we have ordered and will not come with a paper ticket slot.The slot for paper tickets on our current fare gates will be covered up.
All weekend promo tickets that have been handed out have an expiration date prior to 11/30.
Discounted fare for school field trips are now through a Letter of Authorization.
BART has moved to a Clipper-only fare payment system because the region has prioritized the use of Clipper as the Bay Area’s all-in-one transit card administered by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission.
In calendar year 2024, the next generation of Clipper will be rolled out including open payment which provides the option to tag a credit/debit card at a BART fare gate, including Apple Pay or Google Pay, without setting up a card on your phone in advance.
The next generation of Clipper also opens the door for new discount programs, promotions, and potentially fare capping for BART riders.
