Caltrain Suspends Planned Clipper Fare Changes


In light of economic challenges facing the Bay Area as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Caltrain is suspending planned changes to Clipper fare products.

Caltrain’s original Board decision to raise the price of certain Clipper fare products was made in September 2019, long before the current public health crisis. Given recent developments, the agency has decided to halt these fare increases for the time being.

As a result, Caltrain fares, including the existing Clipper Adult fare discounts and Adult Monthly Pass pricing, will not change.

Caltrain will continue to assess the situation to inform future decisions about any fare or service changes. Caltrain is dedicated to providing safe, accessible, convenient transportation service during this difficult time.
