BART Recovering After Systemwide Major Delay Due to Computer Failure

BART officials announced early Thursday that a computer failure caused a major delay to the entire transportation system, but as service resumed later in the morning, only residual delays remained.

BART said at about 5:45 a.m., it was recovering from the computer issue. An agency spokesperson said the specific cause and source of the issue had not yet been determined, “but we do have technicians working to resolve the problem.”

The initial 4:59 a.m. news release read as follows: “There is a major delay systemwide due to a computer failure. Please seek alternate forms of transportation at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

BART’s major incident voicemail added the detail that the issue involves the dispatch system in its operations center.

The agency said mutual aid will be provided by Muni, AC Transit and Contra Costa Connection.

BART is a heavy-rail public transit system that connects the San Francisco Peninsula with communities in the East Bay and South Bay.
