Muni accepts cash fares and offers various passes. Cable cars have seperate fares. The entire Muni bus and rail network uses proof of payment fare system. Passengers with a valid ticket or pass can board any door (cash and token customers need to board at the front door to obtain a transfer). Riders caught without a valid ticket or transfer can be cited.

Passengers that can board through any door:

  1. Those with valid paper pass or transfer.
  2. Clipper users need to tap their card at the reader when boarding and must have sufficient value or a valid pass/transfer.

Passengers that must board through the front door:

  1. Cash or token customers - They need to obtain a valid transfer after paying the fare and keep it as proof of payment.
  2. Riders with disabilities that need to use the wheelchair lift/ramp.
