The Bay Fair BART station was closed for about two hours Wednesday afternoon after a person entered the trackway.

The transit agency issued a service alert that the station was closed for a major medical emergency around 1 p.m. BART officials later confirmed a person was on the tracks, but would not elaborate further.

SkyFOX flew above the station and saw a yellow tarp unfurled on a part of the tracks. There were also several police officers on the platform.

The station reopened at 3:15 p.m. The closure had caused major delays for riders across the train network. 

The AC Transit system was offering bus service to passengers stranded at Bay Fair.
