What is the Gator Pass?


As part of tuition fees, all students pay $180 each semester for a “Gator Pass”—a discounted transit pass incorporated into each student’s OneCard.  The transit features of your OneCard are provided through Clipper--your OneCard is also a Clipper Card.  Clipper is the all-in-one transit card for the Bay Area. It can hold transit passes, such as the Gator Pass, cash value, BART parking value or any combination thereof.

The Gator Pass affords students a 25% discount on all BART rides to and from Daly City BART Station, as well as unlimited rides on the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA)’s MUNI, with the exception of cable cars.
