BART officials are reporting that transbay service between West Oakland and San Francisco resumed Wednesday night after crews cleared a vehicle from the track in Oakland.

Around 7:40 p.m. a vehicle ended up on the tracks between West Oakland and Oakland’s 12th Street Station.

BART closed down the West Oakland station, and shut down transbay service between Oakland and San Francisco, according to BART spokesman Taylor Huckaby.

The West Oakland station reopened around 9:15 p.m.

Service was restored, but major delays were expected systemwide.
