New Adult Clipper Cards Will Cost $3 Starting in September

Starting Sept. 1, 2012, new adult Clipper cards will cost you $3. If you sign up for the Autoload feature online, Clipper will waive the $3 fee when you order, according to SFMTA.

Only the adult Clipper cards will have the new acquisition fee, while Youth and Senior Clipper cards will remain free.

You can read all the glorious details about the Clipper card fee in the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s press statement. But essentially: don’t lose your Clipper card unless you have an extra $3 handy.
