An early morning issue caused the 24th and Mission BART Station to be closed down, ultimately causing system-wide delays on BART. The issue has been identified as a small fire on the BART tracks, the smoldering debris has been put out but the damage was done and trains coming from the Peninsula and East Bay were being turned around as no trains were flowing through Montgomery and Balboa stations at one point. Now that the investigation has concluded, BART stations have been reopened and complete service should restore but it will take awhile for BART Trains to get back on time!
Track inspection complete and trains are moving again. Train congestion and platform crowding will continue as we recover. Fremont to Richmond line is reporting no delays. https://t.co/r5KUt43pjI— SFBART (@SFBART) March 20, 2018
