Equipment Problem In Transbay Tube Causes Major BART Delays Systemwide

OAKLAND (CBS SF) -- BART officials were reporting major delays systemwide due to an equipment problem in the Transbay Tube Wednesday afternoon.

The delay was first announced at 3:41 p.m. and initially affected passengers heading to the East Bay.

At about 4 p.m. BART said there was also a 10-minute westbound delay between all East Bay stations and San Francisco and Peninsula stations due to the equipment problem.

Just after 4:00 p.m. BART said there were major delays across the system. By about 4:20 p.m., the train causing the problem was rolled out of the Transbay Tube.

BART said the brakes on the train had locked up and that there was no danger to passengers.
