OAKLAND (CBS SF) — BART reported major delays heading between Oakland and San Francisco Tuesday evening because of metal debris on the tracks.
The debris was found just outside of the Transbay Tube around 6:15 p.m. and BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said crews had cleared it from the tracks as of about 7 p.m.
Trains were single-tracking through the tube while crews cleared the debris, Trost said. Some trains were turned around at the West Oakland and Embarcadero stations.
Tuesday’s issues follow two other high-profile delays on the system in recent days. Trains were delayed Monday evening after a man was found walking along the tracks between the Bay Fair and San Leandro stations. Last Friday, a computer upgrade led to BART service being shut down for much of the morning commute.
