SAN LEANDRO (CBS SF) — Bay Area Rapid Transit trains on the Fremont to Daly City and Dublin/Pleasanton to Daly City lines were experiencing 30-minute delays in all directions due to a track switch problem for the second time Friday, according to a BART dispatcher.
Track crews responded around 3:45 p.m. to a report of a power issue at the Bay Fair station, the dispatcher said.READ MORE: Deadly Rip Tide Warning Issued For Northern California Beaches
The power issue has resulted in problems operating the track switch, he said.
As of around 4:10 p.m., the dispatcher said BART crews were on scene working to repair the issue.

Crews were able to manually move the switch into the correct position by around 1 p.m., Allison said.
Other issues – including metal debris on the tracks near West Oakland and police activity in Richmond – have contributed to further delays on BART Friday.
On Wednesday, BART was plagued by day-long delays caused by a broken portion of track near San Francisco Civic Center station, a power outage at some East Bay stations, and police activity at the Lafayette station.MORE NEWS: Fmr.
