Major BART Delays Plague Morning Commute

After the evening commute was slowed by a BART fire, the trains are majorly delayed again this morning due to maintenance issues along the Pittsburg/Bay Point line.

Needless to say, this really isn't a good month for BART.

According to BART, this morning's mechanical glitch happened just before 6 a.m. forcing the transit agency to single-track trains between Rockridge and Lafayette. The backup created 45-minute delays for already tired and grumpy commuters trying to get to San Francisco.

As of 7 a.m., commuters were still facing 30 minute-delays.

So, yes, some of you will be very late for work, but at least you don't have to ride the ferry on this chilly October morning.

  • 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.'"
