Update 3:35: Looks like those track problems are still a problem. BART is reporting 10 to 15-minute delays across the whole system due to equipment problems on the track near West Oakland Station.

Original Story 9:34 a.m..: BART is reporting mega delays systemwide, thanks to a track problem in the Transbay Tube.

The delays are the worst between West Oakland and Embarcadero, but no BART rider is being left out of this misery. The whole system is backed up in this morning congestion, says Alicia Trost, spokeswoman for BART

"We do have crews that just arrived on scene," she says. Until the problem -- whatever it is -- is fixed, trains are having to run on manual mode, which is causing the slowdown.

A limited number of trains are able to travel through the Transbay Tube at this time.

Stay tuned.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
