A single ride fare on Muni is good for 120 minutes of travel, whether it be on a single route or a trip with multiple transfers across buses and light rail.
3. USING TICKETS
How do I use a ticket?
Open the MuniMobile app on your phone, and select “My Tickets” from the menu on the left of the screen. Select any of the tickets listed under “Stored Tickets.” A window will pop up. Select “Use Ticket.”
How will I know my ticket is active?
You will see an animation of a moving Muni vehicle, cable car, or SF Access van. The expiration date will display at the top of the ticket. Tapping on the left-facing arrow at the top left of your active ticket will return you to the “My Tickets” screen. Your active ticket will be shown at the top of the list, under “Tickets in Use.”
When should I activate my ticket?
In the subway, activate (“use”) your purchased mobile ticket before passing through metro station fare gates. Show your active ticket to the station agent, and pass through the fare gate closest to the station agent booth. If the station agent is not present, you may still pass through the gate as long as your ticket has been activated. Do not attempt to “tag” the gate.
When boarding a bus or train on the surface, use your purchased mobile ticket before boarding the vehicle. You may board through any door. If you feel more comfortable boarding through the front door to show your ticket to the transit operator, please feel free to do so.
For cable car, use your purchased mobile ticket once you are on board the vehicle. Show your mobile ticket to the cable car conductor.
這是使用者上車前，在手機上自行啟動車票的一種 Honor 制度。當然如果從後門上車，又未誠實啟動車票，碰到查票員查票的話，會有罰金.
If you are traveling without valid Proof of Payment you may be removed from the vehicle and issued a fine of more than $100.
When prompted by an operator, fare inspector, or station agent you can select the active ticket from the list of “Tickets in Use” and display the screen for visual validation.
If an operator, fare inspector, or station agent requests that you activate the barcode on your ticket, tap on the barcode at the bottom right-hand corner of your active ticket. To remove the barcode, tap again at the bottom, right-hand corner of your active ticket.
現金的紙張車票，是以上車的時間為準。比如說我在第 118 分仍可以上車，仍是 Singe Ride，即便我是在第 140 分時下車。
原本考慮四個人買Day Pass $12元，但發現只會待差不多半天，總共48元的Day Pass突然想到有120分鐘的免費轉乘，似乎就可以不用花到Day Pass這麼多錢了
沒 Clipper card 之前都是用現金車上買票，現在都是用 Clipper card 上車，還沒用過 MuniMobile 過。就經驗和官網資訊來回答你的問題，如果資訊有錯的話，歡迎用過 MuniMobile 的人更正。
Can I use multiple tickets at the same time on my device for family and friends?
Yes, buying and using tickets for multiple riders on a single device is a great benefit of MuniMobile. For iOS devices, tap on the “Multiple Riders” toggle at the top of the screen in the “My Tickets” tab, and select the number and type of tickets needed for the group traveling with you. For Android devices, press and hold down on a ticket to select multiple tickets at once.
When using multiple tickets, the ticket that you display to the station agent, fare inspector, or proof of payment officer will show which types of tickets and the number of tickets used for the group.
I purchased tickets but have not used them yet. How long will they last?
Unused bus and rail, cable car, and SF Access tickets are valid up to 180 days after purchase (as is the case with tickets purchased from a vending machine). Unused passports are valid until January 31 of the following year.
