BART is doing away with paper tickets, moving toward a Clipper card only system starting on Monday.
The change takes effect at four pilot stations, starting at 19th Street in Oakland on Monday.
The Oakland station will stop selling paper tickets and will only sell Clipper cards.
The change will take effect system-wide on BART next year.
The elimination of paper tickets will start at three other stations this fall.
Embarcadero: Starting Aug. 19
Powell Street: Starting Sept. 3
Downtown Berkeley: Starting Sept. 24
BART says riders will avoid paying a $0.50 paper ticket fee for one-way fares after the change and it will also decrease fare gate paper jams, machine maintenance and long lines..
