Bay Area Clipper Card Quiz!

Update: Though Professor Akit got this one right on Twitter inside of 30 seconds, we're giving it to Bret Lobree. Akit is a ringer.

Details on Akit's Complaint Department - totally agree with his assessment that MTC botched this one.


For all you transit nerds out there - here is a fun @BayAreaClipper quiz!

Yesterday I walked down the street. Got onto the 48 Bus at 24th/Diamond. I was going to go to Bryant and get on a 27, but NextBus was telling me 54 MINUTES! So I got off at Mission, and was going to take the 14 down to 16th to get a 22/33, but my kid said "I WANNA RIDE THE CHOO CHOO". So we got onto BART at 24th/Mission, took it to 16th Street BART, went upstairs, and got on a 22 to our final destination.

Summary
MUNI ride on the 48
BART ride from 24th to 16th/Mission
MUNI ride on the 22

All within 30 minutes. I used my single clipper card to pay for this trip.

Question - How much did I pay?

First correct answer wins a Growler of Beer from Firehouse/Tied House.

$3.75?

Interestingly enough, the cost was exactly the same as the cost of a Growler of Beer from Firehouse/Tied House.

2 bucks

I'm guessing the 22 didn't know that you had already taken the 48 then add the bart fare: 5.75

So far you're all wrong which is pretty sad. Not on your part, on Clipper's part.

Brutal.

And here's a hint. I returned the same exact way, and paid the exact same fare to get home. And the total round trip was...

RT @sneezix Interestingly enough, the cost was exactly the same as the cost of a Growler of Beer from Firehouse/Tied House.

Frank wins two growlers but must come to SF to collect.

I'll be there in three weeks!

Did you get my second guess via Twitter DM? I got it right on my second guess...I had forgotten the .25 discount, but at least I got the missed transfer from muni part...

Frank Irwin said...

Hey, blobree, quit trying to horn into my growlers?

What's a growler, anyhows? The fact that I have to go to SF to get one worries me a bit.

blobree said...

I'll share...

Frank Irwin said...

Since you're asking nicely, ok.

Is it $5.50?

Can I use my clippard card and ask for a transfer? My trips are short on muni, dies it mean that everytime I board muni and use the clippard card it is deducting $2 per ride? It would be better to pay cash and get a transfer right? I would be saving money in the long run, right?
