Why can't clipper cards be bought or even just have value added at fare machines at caltrain stations. For occasional riders this is a big incovenience. Either one keeps lots of extra money on a card used infrequently or has to make extra trips to stores not near caltrain stations each time.
Also their ticket selling machines have a horrible hard to understand interface, and are very slow. Especially when compared with the ones used in tokyo subway stations.
local citizen, Caltrain is going to be replacing their TVM's and are looking for feedback about what people want. Selling Clipper Cards from the machine was a suggestion I made when I filled out mine.
Please take a couple minutes before Feb 18 and let Caltrain know.
