The Clipper card may soon make its way into Solano and Napa counties, making it easier for transit commuters to link up with BART and other bus systems, according to The Reporter.
A proposal will soon go to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) board to expand the Clipper card into bus transit systems in Solano and Napa, including the Fairfield and Suisun Transit (FAST) system and Vacaville City Coach.
Transit operators in other parts of the Bay Area are also being considered for the expansion, but officials said Solano and Napa have the advantage in that the local system is smaller and won’t cost as much as larger transit systems to outfit with Clipper card readers and other equipment.
The Clipper system allows transit commuters to use a single card to transfer between Muni, BART, AC Transit, VTA, SamTrans, Caltrain, and the Golden Gate buses and boats. Customers buy the Clipper card for a fee either online or at a transit station, and then add cash value on it with a debit or credit card.
