Muni Tests New App to Pay Fares

In the age of the Clipper card, it amazes me when I still see someone whip out cash to pay for their Muni ticket. I guess the Municipal Transportation Agency feels the same way, because they're working on a new smart-phone app that will allow riders to pay their fare sans bills and change.
