That’s right, the transit kiosk in the Embarcadero Station has been “re-engineered and rebranded.”

“Clipper(SM) Customer Service Centers to Open in San Francisco
Background: The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) has re-engineered and rebranded the transit kiosk in the Embarcadero BART/Muni station to focus on Clipper card customer service. In addition to basic card purchase and add-value transactions available at all Clipper retailers (including more than 100 Walgreens stores), the kiosk offers a higher level of service and equipment, allowing travelers to:
– exchange a damaged or defective card for a new one
– receive senior and youth Clipper cards
– use transit benefit vouchers and/or debit cards to load value onto a Clipper card
– get answers to questions about the Clipper program
Clipper is now used to pay fares on 374,000 transit trips each weekday. Participating operators include AC Transit, BART, Caltrain, San Francisco Muni, Golden Gate Transit & Ferry, Dumbarton Express, SamTrans, and Santa Clara County’s Valley Transportation Authority. MTC is the transportation planning, coordinating and financing agency of the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.”
