Translink -- the SF Bay Area single payment transit card -- is now available in a pilot program for users of AC Transit, Golden Gate Transit and Ferry, and the Dumbarton Express. The TransLink card allows commuters to swipe the card against a card reader, and the card reader automatically deducts the correct fare and applies any appropriate discounts, including transfers.

BART, Muni and Caltrain are scheduled to join TransLink in 2007. SamTrans and Santa Clara VTA are scheduled to come on board in 2008. TransLink will expand to serve the several remaining Bay Area transit agencies through 2010.

That would have been so nice to have -- I hated having to get to Safeway each month to buy the GGT transit coupon book, and I especially hated it when they were already sold out.
