SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — BART does not expect trains to be disrupted by this week’s PG&E power shutoffs, the transit agency said Tuesday afternoon.
Some stations may experience escalator outages, but train service is not likely to be impacted, according to BART.
Several stations have portable generators, if necessary, including Rockridge, Orinda, Lafayette, Castro Valley, West Dublin/Pleasanton, Dublin/Pleasanton, the agency said.
Hundreds of thousands of PG&E customers, including households and businesses, are likely to lose power starting Wednesday due to dry, windy weather conditions.
PG&E is opening dozens of resource centers across the Bay Area and Northern California where residents can charge their devices and access air conditions.
