Muni Metro faregates

From Transit.Wiki

The following Muni stations have faregates installed:

Muni has replaced all faregates in September 2010. With the new fare gates, Clipper Cards are the preferred method to enter Muni Metro system. One way cash riders will have to buy a Clipper-based Muni ticket at the stations that can be reused. Paper transfers will no longer be issued at Muni Metro stations (but will be issued if fare is paid on Muni Metro vehicles or buses).
