SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Bay Area Rapid Transit has resumed normal service after earlier experiencing a major delay in the SFO, Millbrae, Daly City and East Bay directions at the Civic Center/United Nations Plaza station in downtown San Francisco. The delay stemmed from someone’s personal property ending up in the trackway, the agency stated.
As of 12:37 p.m., crews had fixed a train control issue between Embarcadero and Montgomery and the obstruction in Civic Center was removed.
“All trains are moving normal speeds through San Francisco Line,” said BART in a tweet. “Service recovering to normal. Expect residual delays.”
Trains had been single-tracking between the Montgomery and 16th Street stations, and some red (Richmond-Millbrae+SFO) and green (Berryessa/North San Jose-Daly City) line trains were not going to San Francisco at all “to avoid a bottleneck,” the agency stated via Twitter.
