Service delays due to disabled BART vehicle on tracks

- BART riders faced delays early Friday morning in the East Bay, because of a disabled maintenance vehicle on the tracks overnight.

BART told KTVU traffic reporter, Sal Castaneda, that the vehicle derailed near the downtown Berkeley Station.

The vehicle was moved to the MacArthur Station, but morning transit service beginning at 4 a.m., was limited from MacArthur Station to Richmond.

Inspection crews had to examine the track, to make sure it was not damaged.

The inspection forced BART to operate single-track service on the Richmond line.

But at about 5:15 a.m., the transit agency told KTVU reporter, Alex Savidge, that the track was fine, and BART was no longer running on just one track.

Since the issue happened early in the morning, and there were not as many trains or passengers, BART reported just 10 minute delays.
