BART back on schedule this morning after Transbay Tube problem fixed overnight

East Bay-bound trains halted Sunday due to electrical failure

BART trains are back on schedule this 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 this morning's commute, which began arriving at the Oakland side of the tube at around 4:30 a.m., were running at full service and on time, BART spokesman Linton Johnson said.

"We don't anticipate that there will be any issues with the morning commute," Johnson said.
