BART announced the system shutdown shortly before the day’s operations were scheduled to start at 8 a.m. due to what it described as a computer communication problem.
The disruption came one day before the transit district had been scheduled to increase the frequency of trains to serve increased weekday ridership.
The system had planned to have trains on some lines running every 15 minutes during weekday commute hours.
