Tickets & Clipper

Ferry tickets and adult Clipper cards may be purchased during regular hours of operation (see below) from terminal ticket machines in Larkspur, Sausalito, and San Francisco. Clipper is the recommended fare payment method and offers ferry customers a discounted fare. Download the Clipper app to make fare payments using your smart phone.

Tickets are valid for 90 days from purchase date and are useable on any Golden Gate Ferry departure (tickets are not for a designated date or trip). Tickets cannot be replaced if lost or stolen, cannot be exchanged, and are not refundable. Proper identification is not needed when purchasing a youth or senior/disabled ticket, but proper identification may need to be presented at the fare gate.

When riding from Tiburon and Sausalito, tickets and Clipper payments are collected when disembarking in San Francisco. If you’re not paying with Clipper, please see an attendant for information about ticket purchase. Golden Gate Ferry NO LONGER accepts Blue and Gold tickets purchased online. 

Adult Clipper cards are available from Golden Gate Ferry terminal ticket machines and many Bay Area retail locations. Riders can also download the Clipper mobile app and use a smart phone to pay Clipper fares. Youth, senior, and RTC Clipper cards are issued by the Golden Gate Transit Customer Service Center (San Rafael Transit Center, Platform D, 850 Tamalpais Avenue, San Rafael; hours: Monday-Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.). Youth and senior Clipper cards may also be obtained by mail, email, or fax. Find additional in-person locations at the Clipper website or by calling 1-877-878-8883.
