    Even when the Clipper machines on the buses “work,” I have found that the time on the individual machines is sometimes off by several weeks. So even if one paid for a ride, the machine would place an incorrect timestamp on the transaction leading to invalid transfer and possible fine for fare evasion.

    Other times I have seen the Clipper machines out of service upon boarding, which means a free rode, but a few minutes later the machine is operational again once the bus is underway.
