Connecting your Clipper card to your account

Clipper is the all-in-one transit card for the Bay Area that holds any combination of cash value and passes, and is your key to unlock Bay Wheels. Unlocking never deducts from you Clipper cash value, serving only as your access key. Link your Bay Wheels membership to your Clipper card and make the transition from transit to bike a breeze.
