BART trains running under the Bay, but service off to a shaky start

Transbay Tube was closed for three days for maintenance

The BART system is recovering this morning from major systemwide delays.

BART officials said the recovery started at 6:08 a.m. The delays started just before 5 a.m., according to BART officials.

Troubled on the BART system started as the transit agency resumed transbay service between Oakland and San Francisco after the Transbay Tube was closed for three days for maintenance.

The first trains were getting ready to make their runs at about 4:10 a.m., officials said. But problems on the new tracks caused the first trains to run about 20 minutes late from the start.

Great job maintenance crew...

I mostly cost the taxpayers over $200,000 to almost repair the tracks in the trans-bay tube.

Keep up the great work
