Transbay BART trains expected to run on schedule

BART trains are expected to resume regular service Monday morning after crews worked overnight to repair an electrical problem that crippled the transit system Sunday, a spokesman said.

Workers spent the night and early morning in BART’s Transbay Tube where a power loss at around 1:50 p.m. prompted officials to shut off all power to a set of tracks used by East Bay-bound trains for the rest of the day.

The first trains of Monday morning’s commute, which begin arriving at the Oakland side of the tube at around 4:30 a.m., are expected to run at full service and on time, BART spokesman Linton Johnson said.

“They don’t anticipate that there will be any issues with the morning commute,” Johnson said.
