SamTrans Promotes Free Transfers

SamTrans Promotes Free Transfers


To help inform riders about the agency’s new free transfer policy, SamTrans is holding a series of outreach events. SamTrans staff will be providing riders with free Clipper cards and will help explain how the new policy will affect their use of the system.

The new transfer policy came about as part of a series of fare changes that went into effect with the New Year. Going forward, there will be no charge for transferring between local SamTrans routes within a two-hour window when using Clipper or the SamTrans Mobile app. Riders paying cash can purchase a Day Pass, which will now cost $4.50 for adults and $2.20 for youth and Eligible Discount riders, the price of two one-way trips.

SamTrans staff will be at the following locations:

Serramonte Center, Daly City

Monday, January 6, 4-6 p.m.

San Bruno BART, San Bruno

Tuesday, January 7, 9-11 a.m.

Linda Mar Park & Ride, Pacifica

Tuesday, January 7, 4-6 p.m.

Palo Alto Transit Center, Palo Alto

Thursday, January 9, 7-9 a.m.
