The Clear Registered Traveller Program. So the idea is you sign up as a member of the Clear program for $79.95 a year, and you get the right to use a ‘clear lane’ at airports, kind of like Fast Track. Sounds good, huh? Until you read the small print and learn that you still have to go through airport metal detectors and X-Ray machines. Doesn’t that sort of defeat the object, or is there something I’m missing here, oh fellow air cattle?
Once in the ClearLane, you will insert your Clear Card into the verification kiosk. The kiosk will read your Card and prompt you to place your finger on the fingerprint reader or look into the iris reader. Once the kiosk verifies that your biometrics match those on your Clear Card and that you are a member in good standing, the kiosk will read “You are Clear.” You will receive a special stamp that will let TSA know you are a Clear Member and you will be exempt from selectee status.
