Equipment problems at Daly City BART station causing delays

An equipment problem on BART tracks near the Daly City station is causing major delays this evening, according to BART officials.

The delays are occurring in both the East Bay and the San Francisco International Airport, Millbrae directions, BART officials said at about 4:50 p.m.

BART operators are manually cranking train switches in order to allow trains to move through the station due to the equipment problem, according to a BART dispatcher.

The delays may take 20 minutes or more, the dispatcher said.

The equipment problem does not appear related to the brief power outage that occurred at the 24th Street station in San Francisco earlier this afternoon, according to the dispatcher.
