Effective January 31, 2018 OSA will discontinue selling student BART tickets. We are ending sales due to the following changes BART has made to their Student Discount program as of January 1, 2018:
- all trips taken using a paper ticket are subject to an additional charge of $.50 each way - The additional $1 per day offsets the benefit of a discount card
- all customers ages 5 through 18 will be recognized as youth and able to access the 50% discount on BART using a Youth Clipper card
- the discount with the Youth Clipper card is good seven days per week (the paper ticket is only good weekdays)
- BART will stop selling the paper tickets as of 6/30/18
For your convenience the attachment contains:
- Information on the Youth Clipper card
- Clipper Youth Application
- Locations to apply for the card
Additional information on the Clipper Youth card can be found at www.clippercard.com.
Paper copies of the application are also available from the front desk.
Students can continue to purchase the student BART card through January 31st or until supply ends, whichever comes first.
If you have any questions on the change please contact Ms. Jones email@example.com.
