Update 7:45 a.m.: BART is now reporting that service is restored between Hayward and Fremont in the Fremont, Richmond and Daly City directions. However, you should expect miserable delays.

Original story 6:52 a.m.: Commuters in the far East Bay trying to get to San Francisco this morning will have to find a way to work other than BART.

According to BART, all trains south of Hayward were taken out of service after a death on the tracks last night.

KTVU reports that a person was hit by a train while on the tracks near the South Hayward station at about 11:25 p.m. Tuesday.

The train remained on the tracks this morning while police continued to investigate. No bus bridge will be set up to shuttle stranded commuters, and those looking to transfer to the Bay Fair station, just know: there's only limited service into San Francisco this morning.

Good luck.

  • 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.'"
