Discover & Go offers free BART rides to select venues through year's end

The Contra Costa County Library is once again offering free BART access for use with Discover & Go reservations through December. County residents 18 or older can submit requests for BART tickets, which will be mailed to cardholders' homes within five business days of the request. The offer is limited to one request per household (for a $15 BART ticket) and is available while supplies last.
The promotion, a partnership between 511 Contra Costa and the library, is intended to encourage the use of public transportation to visit museums.
"The Bay Area is full of amazing venues that include cultural learning experiences and fun," said County Librarian Melinda Cervantes. "This partnership with 511 Contra Costa is making travel easier and helping our environment."
Since its inception in 2011, Discover & Go has met Contra Costa County Library's goal of providing access to culture inside and outside the library by partnering with over 90 northern California museums, and has made over a million cultural visits possible for library cardholders; 511-Contra Costa's Trip Planner feature can be used to plan Discover & Go trips.
The following venues are valid destinations for the BART ticket promotion: Asian Art Museum, California Academy of Sciences, California Historical Society, Children's Creativity Museum, Chinese Historical Society of America Museum, Contemporary Jewish Museum, de Young Museum, Exploratorium, Habitot Children's Museum, International Art Museum, Lawrence Hall of Science, McConaghy House (Hayward Area Historical Society), Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment, Museum of the African Diaspora, Oakland Museum of California, UC Berkeley Art Museum, Pacific Film Archive, and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
To sign up for BART tickets, view your October, November or December reservation on your Discover & Go account, click "Retrieve Pass" then click on the 511 banner on your Discover & Go pass to request your BART ticket.
