AC Transit is hosting three community sign-up events to give youth and their parents a more convenient way to sign up for Clipper Youth cards.

The special sign-ups will be from noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 14 at NewPark Mall in Newark; Sept. 15 at Hilltop Mall in Richmond; and Sept. 22 at Bayfair Center in San Leandro.

Youth ages 5 to 18 who have a Clipper Youth card can get the significantly-discounted 31-Day AC Transit Youth pass which offers unlimited rides for $20. An AC Transit Clipper Youth card is personalized with a photo and is usable on all Bay Area transit. The card must be obtained in person with an application form signed by a parent or guardian and proof of age documentation (birth certificate, passport, medical benefit card, DMV license, California ID card, etc.).

A Clipper Youth card is good for continued use until the cardholder is 19 years old.

Students and their parents can also sign up for a personalized card at AC Transit's Clipper Customer Service Center in downtown Oakland at 1600 Franklin Street. The center's hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, except on holidays.
