BART Trains Back On Time After Transbay Tube Problems

OAKLAND (BCN) – BART trains resumed regular service Monday morning after crews worked overnight to repair an electrical problem that crippled the transit system Sunday, a spokesman said.

Workers spent the night and early morning in BART’s Transbay Tube where a power loss at around 1:50 p.m. prompted officials to shut off all power to a set of tracks used by East Bay-bound trains for the rest of the day.

The first trains of Monday morning’s commute, which begin arriving at the Oakland side of the tube at around 4:30 a.m., were expected to run at full service and on time, BART spokesman Linton Johnson said.

“They don’t anticipate that there will be any issues with the morning commute,” Johnson said.
