Tagged my Clipper card at the gate to enter MUNI - gate opened. On train fair inspector told me that I don't have any valid payment and issued me a ticket despite me telling her that I was let in by the gate.
Contested ticket stating that gate opened upon tagging my clipper card. SFMTA wrote me back that "citation was properly issued and is valid" - no further explanation. Now I'm forced to pay the $103 fine before I can even get a hearing.
