Individuals who use San Francisco's Clipper Card for public transportation can now use Apple Pay for fares on ferries, trains, and buses in the area. Users can officially add an existing Clipper Card to the Wallet app under the Transit section for easy and contactless fare payment.
San Francisco's public transit users will also benefit significantly from the Express Transit support in Apply Pay. This feature enables people riding public transit to quickly use their iPhone or their Apple Watch to authenticate a ride and pay the transport fare. This contactless solution allows ride authentication without the use of Face ID or Touch ID to unlock the device. This grants users a fast and easy public transit experience.
