When you receive your RTC Discount ID card, you will be immediately eligible for reduced fares on all participating transit systems. No additional proof of eligibility is required, but you must show the Discount ID Card at the time you pay the fare.
Applications for the RTC Discount ID Card are accepted at San Francisco Bay Area transit agency locations and forwarded to a central office. The Central Processor then reviews and verifies applicant information and prepares a card that is printed and mailed by the Clipper program.
If you are 65 years of age or older, you qualify for a Senior discount, which is the same discount offered by the RTC Discount Card.

The application process for a Senior Clipper card is easier and quicker than for the RTC card, and the Senior card does not need to be renewed.
