Caltrain’s joint monthly pass with Muni will no longer be available for purchase, starting on December 21 for January passes. The fare has been discontinued because the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which manages Muni, is no longer offering a $5 discount to the Clipper card pass.

Passengers who travel on both Caltrain and Muni more than 18 days a month should buy and load an Adult Muni-only “M” Pass on their Clipper card for $70. If Caltrain passengers travel on Muni less frequently, they should add cash value to their Clipper card.

If you transfer to Muni within an hour of tagging off on Caltrain using cash value, an 8-ride Ticket or a Monthly Pass with a Zone 1 origin or destination, you will automatically receive a 50-cent discount off the Muni Adult cash value fare. You must tag on and off on Caltrain – even if you have a Monthly Pass – to receive the discount on Muni.

More details on the best fare options for travelling on Muni and Caltrain are available at the Clipper card website here.

About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain has enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 60,000 average weekday riders earlier this year. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
