BART problems

CAUSE: 7:20 a.m. -- BART switching devices fail
in a triangle area that connects Lake Merritt,
MacArthur and West Oakland stations.

EFFECT: Trains had to be driven and switched
from track to track manually. All 56 BART trains
pass through that area.

DELAY: As long as 90 minutes. A spokesman
said the delays were the worst he's seen in 10

Homer, it seems to be the same story.
It's probably an ongoing problem.

Nice running into you in SF.

They both happened this morning...

I crossed the Golden Gate bridge 10 minutes before the bicyclist accident. A co-worker was two hours late to the bank because of the BART delays. All seems fine here in SF @ 11:40am.
