SF Muni offering free TransLink cards to youths, seniors

Posted on February 25, 2010

On Wednesday, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) announced upcoming events where customers can apply for a free youth or senior TransLink card. The events will take place at Muni Metro stations beginning Feb. 25.

 

TransLink enables customers to pay for rides on many Bay Area transit services. The TransLink card stores value in the form of electronic cash (e-cash) and transit passes. In addition to being accepted on Muni, TransLink also is accepted by AC Transit, BART, Caltrain, Dumbarton Express, and Golden Gate Transit and Ferry.

 

Youth and senior discounts are available with TransLink, but customers must apply in person for a specially encoded youth or senior TransLink card. Appropriate discounts will be applied when customers use their cards. The normal fee for a TransLink card is $5. For a limited time, SFMTA is waiving the $5 fee.

 

To make it easier for youths and seniors to begin using TransLink, SFMTA is holding a series of promotional events at Muni Metro stations and at the first Sunday Streets event, where customers can apply in person for their free youth or senior TransLink card.
