To raise awareness about its transbay bus service, AC Transit is handing out free bus passes at a summer kickoff event in San Francisco Tuesday.
Police are trying to determine whether a fire near a Bay Area Rapid Transit station that shut down train service between San Francisco and Oakland was intentionally set.
The Metropolitan Transportation Commission was running an emergency drill Thursday morning when they got the call about the fire near the West Oakland BART station.
Bay Area Rapid Transit trains began running between San Francisco and the East Bay shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday. Trains had been shut down for the entire day following an overnight fire next to the East Oakland tracks.
BART trains are resuming service through the Transbay Tube Sunday morning after inspectors were unable to find evidence of a fire reported near San Francisco, a spokesman said.
