BART Strike Information

Transbay Service - During the stoppage Lynx routes will operate per the regular service schedule throughout the day. In addition, WestCAT will operate all JPX routes to and from San Francisco. This will provide additional trips into San Francisco from Hercules and also from Pinole during the strike. This will provide an approximately 11 additional morning trips into San Francisco and in the evening approximately an additional 15 trips. These trips will operate every 15 minutes during the peak. However, due to the anticipated traffic delays we cannot guarantee buses will depart per the schedule. Please note that due to the high increase in traffic volume major delays are anticipated on all trips to and from San Francisco. The last vehicle leaving San Francisco in the evening will depart the Transbay Terminal at approximately 8 p.m.

WestCAT will make no changes to the JL and JR routes. Subject to traffic delays we will operate this service unaffected.

WestCAT will not operate any JX service during the strike. All riders wishing to travel to El Cerrito del Norte BART should use the JPX or J (JL/JR) services.
