San Francisco Municipal Transportation, known better as “MUNI“, recently introduced brand new Clipper Cards in an effort to make transportation on the bus and train lines quicker and more convenient. Normally, a traveling adult would either buy an unlimited monthly pass for $60 or buy a 90-minute transfer ticket for $2. The Clipper Cards allow you to preload the card with any amount rather than paying a flat fee each month or having to pay in cash for each ride. The cards also work on Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Caltrain.
I asked San Francisco State University and City College of San Francisco students who use MUNI to get to school everyday what they thought about the new Clipper Cards. The answers I received were very diverse.
