Jason Weinstein

Acting Director, Electronic Payments, Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC)
United States

Jason Weinstein P.E., Acting Director of Electronic Payments, is the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s (MTC) program manager for Clipper, San Francisco Bay Area’s regional fare collection system for transit. Mr. Weinstein manages Clipper Operations efforts for the Bay Area that process nearly 13 million transactions and settles close to $30 million in revenue for 24 transit services each month. Clipper is dedicated to providing equity to its customers by offering discounts to disabled, youth, and senior riders. To further equity-based endeavors, Mr. Weinstein directs the program called Clipper START which offers 50% discounts to qualified low-income patrons. 

Mr. Weinstein is also responsible for the delivery of a state-of-the-art, next generation, account-based Clipper program which will provide scalability and connections to systems that are tangential to transit. This will enable any cloud-based program such as bikeshare, scooters, ride hailing, microtransit, parking, tolling and more to integrate with Clipper. While Clipper prepares for the new system, Mr. Weinstein worked to add Clipper cards available in both Apple and Google wallets – an integration that has only been accomplished in 3 systems in the U.S. The future Clipper system will accept both credit and debit cards (open-payment) directly on vehicles, gates, and platform readers.

Mr. Weinstein’s 30-year transportation career also includes extensive experience in construction management, traffic and toll operations, spanning 14 years with the California Department of Transportation. He is a frequently requested speaker and panel member at major conferences and transit-related events.
