    Seat testing begins at 3 pm. Monday afternoon at the Union City station.

    The first three events will be held:

    • October 8th at Pittsburg/Bay Point Station (3 pm to 7 pm)
    • October 9th at Downtown Berkeley Station (10 am to 6 pm)

    • Pleasant Hill/Contra Costa Centre
    • Balboa Park
    • West Dublin/Pleasanton
