Protect your transit passes. Don't place them with your cell phone, near a magnetic clasp on a wallet or purse, and separate them from other magnetic strip cards. They will demagnetize. Ask for a pass cover the next time you purchase a pass. If you have a problem, contact us immediately at 510-724-7993. Also WestCAT drivers do not accept altered or damaged transit tickets issued through the online pay system for the Hercules Transit Center. Do not change the date, day or anything else on these tickets or they are not valid. If you have a problem with the online pay system please visit www.herculestransitcenter.com or call 1-800-997-0197.
