The Bay Area is hunkering down for a major storm expected to hit on Thursday. Officials are warning of high winds and rain that could cause hazardous driving conditions, but Golden Gate ferry service will still be running during the commute.
All service in and out of San Francisco’s Embarcadero BART station was shut down after a person was reportedly hit by a Richmond-bound train Wednesday afternoon.
BART ridership is higher than ever but its fleet of train cars is breaking down, especially on hot days. Trains can get so crowded during rush hour that some passengers are unable to get on.
System officials say they’re planning a 1-year pilot program that will put a handful of buses on existing AC Transit routes and link up parts of Contra Costa county with more buses crossing the bridge each night from San Francisco.
Three northbound lanes on Interstate Highway 680 in San Ramon have reopened after closing when a truck carrying wet concrete crashed earlier Tuesday morning.
The morning commute into San Francisco has gone smoothly so far Tuesday following the overnight closure of a major off-ramp from the Bay Bridge into the city.
As soon as next week, Bay Bridge commuters who use the Folsom Street off-ramp exit will have to use an alternate route due to a partial closure.
Increased ridership, shorter trains, and an aging fleet are part of the reason BART commuters are being packed into cars like sardines many days.
Two northbound deer briefly stopped traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge Friday night as they made a run for the hills of Marin County.
All lanes are now open following a collision involving two buses on eastbound Interstate Highway 80 in Pinole Thursday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.
