OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Jammed-packed BART trains began heading toward San Francisco Friday after a disabled train on the westbound tracks outside the Oakland West station halted service for more than hour, stranding thousands of passengers on station platforms.
BART officials reported the disabled train at about 7:45 a.m. Initially, they thought the train could be returned to the station and taken out of service, but they could not move the train.
Crews were able to restore some portion of service by 8:50 a.m., but officials warned commuters that they would still encounter major delays.
During the outage, passengers took to social media to voice their frustrations and post photos.
