Additionally, WestCAT LYNX customers can take Routes JPX and J to El Cerrito del Norte BART.
The WestCAT LYNX 31-day pass is valid for use on all of WestCAT’s routes. During the bridge closure, customers with a valid 10-ride LYNX pass should not insert the pass into the farebox, but instead “flash” the pass to the driver.
