Earn rewards for smart commuting

Earn points for every trip you make on BART using your Clipper card, and up to six times the points for trips that start outside the morning rush. Redeem your points for small cash rewards or try the Spin to Win game for the chance to win up to $100. Rewards are paid out monthly via PayPal. BART Perks is a test program that will conclude in February 2017. Visit the FAQs.

How to earn points

You accrue 17 points for each trip you travel on BART*, and extra points for trips that begin during bonus hours. Earn even more points during bonus hours based on your program status—3x, 4x, 5x or even 6x points!

*The pilot program began with a point per mile reward system. We are currently testing a new way of rewarding commuters — where you are eligible to earn the same number of points for every weekday trip regardless of how long your trip is.
