OAKLAND (CBS SF) — BART officials were reporting major delays systemwide due to an equipment problem in the Transbay Tube Wednesday afternoon.

The delay was first announced at 3:41 p.m. and initially affected passengers heading to the East Bay.

At about 4 p.m. BART said there was also a 10-minute westbound delay between all East Bay stations and San Francisco and Peninsula stations due to the equipment problem.
