The free event will also feature product and cooking demonstrations, drawings for prizes every 15 minutes, ice cream and cupcakes, and face painting for kids, until 2 p.m.

BART is proposing to adjust senior, disabled and youth fares downward and is moving customers from red and green tickets to discounted Clipper cards. The Clipper card gives a discount at the fare gate rather than when customers purchase tickets.
The proposal calls for adjusting the discount to at least the current 62.5%. Because of rounding, the discount could be higher. For example, if the full one-way fare for a trip is $1.75, the discounted fare is 65.6 cents but the fare charged would be 65 cents so the actual discount would be 62.9%. In no case would the discount be less than 62.5% and it may be as high as 64.9%.
BART is asking for feedback: Fill out a comment card at its stations; call (510) 464-7134; or email at www.bart.gov.
