BART is running very behind morning after a handful of problems brought trains to a screeching halt in the East Bay.
According to BART, trains are running 20-30 minute late on the Fremont Line in the Richmond and Daly City directions. Alicia Trost, spokeswoman for BART, says "several different problems on different trains" caused the same problem: delays.
Trost says police held trains at Fruitvale while attempting to chase down a bike thief. No word yet on whether the suspect was captured. But the bigger issue, she says, was the multiple train equipment problems.
"A few trains were taken out of service because of jammed doors and other issues. All of this happened at about the same time and it compounded the delays making it worse," Trost tells us.
Trains are moving again, albeit not on time.
