Transbay Tube BART service restored with major systemwide delays


BART service has been restored through the Transbay Tube Thursday afternoon following a gas line break in West Oakland, BART officials said. As of 3:19 p.m., service had been restored, but BART officials said riders should expect major, residual systemwide delays because of the earlier closure.

A construction company damaged a large pipeline and the Oakland Fire Department had instructed BART to not run trains through the tube, BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said.

There was no damage to the tube itself, Trost said.
