The End of an Era: Say goodbye to Muni’s paper transfers


When they came for our paper Fast Passes, we … well, we said a lot.

Now, as SFBay reports, Muni is set to replace paper Muni transfers we’ve come to love and make hella art out of with fare boxes that print transfers on the fly. That won’t hold things up, nah.

The agency’s Board of Directors on Tuesday approved a plan to begin accepting proposals for the project, which includes a minimum of 1,250 new transit vehicle fareboxes.

A SFMTA staff report said there would be no need to provide drivers with pre-printed transfer booklets. The report also said new printed transfers would help with security issues like stolen transfer booklets.

What’s that you say? You have a Clipper Card and never use the transfers? Oh, but still. Times is a-changing.
