BART trains being tested after outage

BART officials have announced that train service is now restored after being shut down for three hours following a computer problem that impacted two systems needed to dispatch trains that developed overnight. 

Crews in Oakland were working on BART’s power supply and ran into some problems that affected the train control routing system.

BART says around 2:45 a.m., a computer network failure occurred from what they originally believed was due to planned maintenance work — They have since determined that the planned work was no the cause of the failure. 

Trains from Daly City to Millbrae or SFO airport were temporarily without service even after restored but have resumed operations as of 10:50 a.m.

Officials tweeted out saying, “bus agencies that serve our stations have granted mutual aid which means our riders don’t have to pay.”

Muni also was providing mutual aid for riders.
