The incident initially prompted the closure of the El Cerrito del Norte station as well as the Richmond station. The Richmond station has since
reopened and trains were single-tracking through the El Cerrito del Norte station without stopping, Filippi said.

Alameda-Contra Costa Transit buses are providing mutual aid for riders along the affected route.
