The West Dublin/Pleasanton BART station remains closed this morning following a death on the tracks, said a BART spokeswoman.

The West Dublin/Pleasanton station was closed after a 7:15 a.m. report of a person under a train at the station, BART spokeswoman Denise Gonzalez said.

Trains are single-tracking through the station without stopping, causing major delays on the Dublin/Pleasanton line in both directions and 10- to 15-minute delays systemwide, Gonzalez said.

BART police have confirmed the person died, and officials are now waiting for the Alameda County coroner’s bureau to respond to the scene and complete the investigation before restoring service, Gonzalez said.
