Getting Along Fine Without Clear

The Clear Program is planning to start once again in Denver. A New York company named Alclear LLC says it will honor all members of the old Clear Program. It is estimated the old Clear Program had 22,000 members in Denver. If you had nine months left on your Clear card the new company will allow you to have nine months left on their program.
I was Clear Program member. I have to say I have gotten along just fine without the Clear Program. It does help a lot if you don't have status with an airline that will allow you go through the short security instead of the long security line. I hope the new company does well, but I will have a hard time paying the $179 annual membership.
