BART riders could see delays of 20 to 40 minutes this weekend and next on some lines due to maintenance work and repairs to electrical cables that will shut down half the Transbay Tube.

Riders traveling from any San Francisco or Peninsula station toward Dublin or Fremont during the affected hours will need to take a Pittsburg/Bay Point-bound train to travel through the tube, BART officials said.

They will then need to get off the train at 12th Street Station in Oakland and go downstairs to transfer to a special Dublin- or Fremont-bound train.

Those traveling from Fremont or Dublin to San Francisco and Daly City will take their usual trains, but the trains will be diverted at MacArthur Station.

They will also need to get off the train at 12th Street station and transfer to a San Francisco-bound train.
