BART reported three separate problems on Thursday morning, creating an early morning headache for commuters. Within about 90 minutes, the problems had been cleared, though leaving residual delays.
As of 5:30 a.m., BART responded to these problems.
-- Cracked rail between Bay Fair and South Hayward station, single tracking
--Train possibly hits debris in underground tracks between 16th and Civic Center in San Francisco.
--Reports of 'false occupancies' in downtown Oakland, slowing trains. False occupancies means when a computer makes it seem like a train is there, when it's really not.
By 5:42 a.m. BART had resolved two of the issues. Only the cracked rail issue remained, causing at least 20-minute delays as rains were single tracking.
By 6:20 a.m., the Bay Fair to Hayward problem had been fixed.
