How to Request the Caltrain Go Pass on the Clipper Card
Step 1: Obtain a Clipper Card
Already have a Clipper Card? Skip to Step 2.
There are a number of ways to get a Clipper card:
- Online on the Clipper website
- Visit a retail location such as Walgreen's or Whole Foods, or
- Obtain one from a transit agency.
- Stanford Transportation issues Clipper Cards to some new employees and upon request for eligible commuters.
If you are only eligible for the Caltrain Go Pass: Any valid adult fare Clipper Card can be used. Please note that the Go Pass cannot be loaded on Senior, Youth, or RTC/ Disabled cards.
If you are eligible for both the Go Pass and VTA SmartPass: We recommend that you load your Go Pass onto your SmartPass Clipper card to avoid the need to have two cards. Please note that passes cannot be transferred between Clipper cards. Passes must be deactivated in order to activate them on a different Clipper card.
Step 2: Request that the Caltrain Go Pass be added to your Clipper Card
Eligible Stanford affiliates should complete Option 2 in the Transit Pass Request Form.
Step 3: Activate Your Go Pass
To activate the Go Pass on your Clipper card, you must tag on at a Clipper card reader at a Caltrain station.
