Trees on BART tracks force train evacuations

Bay Area Rapid Transit service between the 24th Street-Mission station in San Francisco and the Daly City station is still shut down today due to downed trees on the tracks, with no estimate for reopening, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.

Passengers from two BART trains on those tracks were safely evacuated, and a maintenance crew is attempting to clear the tree branches off the tracks, according to Allison. BART started providing bus service from its 24th-Street Mission station for passengers headed to San Francisco International Airport, according to a BART spokesman. The buses will pick up every half hour.

Trains are running at reduced speeds throughout the BART system, Allison said, and delays are indefinite.
