September 7: AC Transit Class Pass Forum

9 a.m. - 2 p.m. | UC Berkeley | Wheeler Hall Plaza

We, along with UC Berkeley Parking & Transportation, are hosting the AC Transit Class Pass Forum. Instead of an online forum, as we have been doing for the last two years, we want you to meet with both AC Transit and P&T Staff, in person, in the Fall, to discuss:

  • Multimodal Transit Connections
  • Using the Student EasyPass and Clipper BayPass
  • ...and more

Welcome to AC Transit

Whether you are new to AC Transit or have been riding with us for years, you might not be aware of all the changes and improvements we’ve made to ensure it’s easier than ever to board, pay, and ride. From new contactless ways to pay your fare on your mobile device or on Clipper, to new technology that shows you real-time bus capacity, you’ll discover something new about AC Transit.
