Watch Out, Commuters: Major Delays on BART (Update)

Posted By on Thu, Jul 18, 2013 at 2:53 PM

  • Late!

Update 3:24 p.m.:Those BART delays have gotten a bit better; commuters can now expect a 10 to 15-minute minute delay on the Richmond line in the Fremont, Richmond and Millbrae directions.

Original story 2:53 p.m.: A small brush fire near the Richmond train yard brought BART to a screeching halt this afternoon, causing major delays.

Trains are backed up in the Fremont, Richmond, and Millbrae directions, and, according to SF Appeal, there is no service at all to the Richmond, El Cerrito del Norte and El Cerrito Plaza stations.


Last year, a three-alarm fire near the West Oakland BART station shut down service between S.F. and the East Bay for 12 hours. Hopefully, this "small fire wil" be a lot less disruptive.

We'll update you when trains are running on time again, but in the meantime, expect an annoying commute home.

  • 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.'"
