Purchase Tickets at the Station
Automatic Ticket Machines
All BART stations sell tickets through automatic ticket machines that accept nickels, dimes, quarters and $1 coins, as well as $1 $5, $10 and $20 bills. Credit and debit cards may be used at all stations in select credit and debit machines.
You can buy a high value discount ticket from any of the My Transit Plus locations: Embarcadero, Montgomery, Powell Street, Civic Center, Walnut Creek, or Bay Fair Stations. Lake Merritt Station also sells the tickets at the window.
1/15/16 Closure: MyTransitPlus store at Bay Fair and Walnut Creek Stations will be closed Friday, 1/15/16 and reopen Monday, 1/18/16. Please buy tickets at other retail locations open 1/15/16.

Purchase Tickets at a Retail Location
BART red and green discount tickets are sold at some retail locations around the Bay Area. (1/15/16 Closure: Please see schedule for MyTransitPlus stores above.)
However, the retail network is being phased out as we transition to the Clipper card. Visit http://www.clippercard.com/ for more information on the Clipper card.
The only method to purchase BART fare online is http://www.clippercard.com/. Clipper is an all-in-one transit card that keeps track of any passes, discount tickets, ride books and cash value that you load onto it, while applying all applicable fares, discounts and transfer rules.
Tickets by Mail
Send us a completed mail order form with a check or money order to receive your tickets by mail.

Students on a school-sponsored field trip for an educational purpose are eligible. Students must be chaperoned by adults and enter and leave stations as a group.
