Huzzah! "When asked how else they would like to use Clipper, respondents (providing multiple answers) listed public parking, transit parking and tolls among the most popular responses."

Pay for parking with your Clipper card! The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and Clipper are testing how Clipper can work for parking payment at five San Francisco garages. It's simple: Load your Clipper card with parking value. When you enter the garage, take a time-stamped parking ticket as normal. When you leave, bypass the pay stations and head right to your car! Insert your parking ticket at the exit gate and tag your Clipper card to pay.

You can use your Clipper card at these five participating San Francisco garages:
Japan Center Garage - 1610 Geary Boulevard (at Webster St.)
North Beach Garage - 735 Vallejo Street (between Stockton St. and Powell St.)
Performing Arts Garage - 360 Grove Street (at Gough St.)
Moscone Center Garage - 255 3rd Street (between Howard St. and Folsom St.)
Mission Bartlett Garage - 3255 21st Street (at Bartlett St.)

Now that's what you call, "cashless" society. ;-)

For sure. But is that a good thing?

Oh, it was just me thinking out loud. Not really sure if I can say it's a good thing. For this one, I guess it is. But if you say total cashless society, I am more apprehensive on that issue. It could mean additional costs. But again, for this case regarding the clipper card to be able to pay for parking meters, I'd support this one. :-)

Although not yet meters, you can now use your Clipper Card to pay for parking in five SFMTA-operated garages including the Moscone Center Garage - 255 3rd St. (between Howard St. and Folsom St.) in Soma.

"Before using Clipper to pay for parking, drivers must add 'parking value' to their Clipper accounts. Parking value is different from cash value, which can be used on all participating transit systems. Parking value is only available online at clippercard.com or by calling Clipper Customer Service at 877-878-8883. Drivers can set up their cards to automatically reload whenever their parking value balance falls below $40 by linking to a credit card, debit card or bank account.

When they are ready to leave the garage, drivers simply approach the exit gate and tag their Clipper cards to a Clipper card reader, adjacent to the regular ticket and payment machine, to open the gate."

Here's an article written about two years ago: sfist.com/2011/11/16/sfmta_is_... I'm just so glad it's finally happening.

This is such a great idea - I was super excited when the Clipper Card was launched, only makes sense that it should cover parking meters too. And what about bridge tolls too?
