Automatic Fare Collection (AFC)
Entry fare gate
Records time, date, station; returns ticket.
Exit fare gate
Computes fares, informs if additional payment is needed or deducts proper amount from the ticket. The exit gate keeps "exact fare" tickets, and returns all other tickets with their remaining value printed on them.
This is a wider gate to accommodate passengers with wheelchairs, bikes, strollers and baggage. It serves as both an entry and exit gate, with ticket slots on both the entry and exit ends. It works in the same manner as the regular fare gates.
Bart Tickets are plastic, credit-card sized, with magnetically encoded value. Fare gates automatically deduct trip fares from the stored fare value on ticket. Just like a regular credit card, the magnetic BART ticket should always be kept dry and away from magnetic sources and should not be folded or bent.
The Clipper fare payment system is a Bay Area regional project managed the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. Clipper provides Bay Area transit customers a single fare payment medium for all their transit trips, through use of electronic "smart card" technology.
BART fares are based on how far you travel. Discounted tickets are available at participating banks, retailers, social-service agencies and community-based organizations and the BART Customer Service Office. Discount tickets are not available at BART Stations. Children 4 and under ride free, children 5 through 12, senior citizens (age 65 and over) and persons with disabilities are eligible for discounts.
