  • Madison doing the right thing.

  • My wife just told me she got a paper Muni M Fast Pass. I thought last month was the end of that. The lady at Walgreens told her they are doing them through March now. I thought only the Senior and Youth passes were going to stay paper until March.

  • I should specify, she got a paper November M Fast Pass.

  • Mario

    Only the paper A Fast Passes are being eliminated right now. M passes transition in April 2011.

  • Really? I thought it was both A and M. Interesting, thanks.

  • Senior and Youth Muni passes transition in January 2011. Very soon!

    To Muni’s eternal credit, after much begging and pleading, Clipper card reps came to the fall festival at my daughter’s school (on a Saturday) and took youth Clipper card applications from anyone who showed up with an ID.
