Power Issues Force Bay Fair BART Station to Close

SAN LEANDRO (CBS SF) — The Bay Fair BART station in San Leandro closed Thursday night due to power issues, according to BART officials.

Earlier in the evening, a reported fire at a substation near Oakland’s Coliseum station caused major delays at the Coliseum station on the Warm Springs line in the Dublin/Pleasanton, Warm Springs, Richmond and Daly City directions, BART officials said around 9:40 p.m.

An inspection train ran through the affected area and, around 10:25 p.m., BART officials said the inspection was complete. No damage was observed and BART said normal operations would resume with residual delays.

It was not immediately clear if the power issues at the Bay Fair station were related the earlier substation fire near the Coliseum.
