Damaged gas line causes major BART delays

Bay Area

WEST OAKLAND (KRON) — BART is experiencing major delays Thursday afternoon because of a damaged gas line at the West Oakland station, the agency said. 

Delays are impacting the entire BART system.

Train service was stopped through the Transbay Tube in both the San Francisco and East Bay directions. 

As of 3:25 p.m., service in the tube was back open in both directions.

According to BART, a construction company damaged a natural gas line near the West Oakland station, causing service through the Transbay Tube to be stopped. 

The Muni is providing mutual aid to BART customers as officials handle the gas line.
