Since the new fare gates were installed at Civic Center and Powell station, I’ve been seeing lots of complaints about them on our Twitter feed. Fear not, the diligent Akit of Akit’s Complaint Department has made two great instructional videos on how to use the new machines, and a good tip about how visitors can avoid the 25 cent surcharge for a paper Muni ticket (now that the fare gates don’t take cash). Easy: get a Clipper card.
Akit also has a video on how to add fare to your card using the new machines. Check them out.
