BART stopped train service through the Transbay Tube Thursday afternoon because of a damaged PG&E gas line near the West Oakland station.
BART initially reported the problem at about 2:40 p.m. Service was restored as of 3:19 p.m., although BART said passengers should expect residual delays.
In a post on Twitter, the agency said Oakland Fire Department was reporting that a construction company damaged a natural gas pipeline near West Oakland Station. Service has been suspended until further notice, officials said.
The shutdown came shortly after service delays caused by a person being struck by a BART train at the Embarcadero station Thursday afternoon, a transit agency spokesman said.
A Millbrae-bound train struck the person around 1 p.m., prompting BART to run trains through the station without stopping, BART spokesman Chris Filippi said.
The station remained open during the emergency response, and regular service resumed as of 1:45 p.m. after the person was taken away from the station, Filippi said.
The person was taken to a hospital and there was not immediate update on the person’s condition.
Residual delays are expected as BART resumes its normal service.
