PRESS CONFERENCE VIDEO FROM FRIDAY, MAY 27
The first weekend of critical maintenance work on the Transbay Tube went according to plan, with another round coming up the weekend of June 4-5. The maintenance means major delays and additional transfers for some customers going through the Transbay Tube.
"Everything went smoothly and we will follow the same plan this coming weekend to get the work finished," Chief Communications Officer Linton Johnson said, following a weekend in which work was done on Saturday, May 28, Sunday, May 29, and on the Memorial Day holiday, Monday, May 30.
The delays are necessary to accommodate work on the cables that provide power to the track in the tube. Our best estimate is that delays for trains in both directions will be approximately 20 to 40 minutes on the lines requiring transfers (trains coming from or going toward Dublin or Fremont) and 5 to 10 minutes on the other lines (trains coming from or going toward Richmond or Pittsburg/Bay Point) during the hours listed below.
During the hours listed below, customers who are traveling from any San Francisco or Peninsula station toward Dublin or Fremont will need to take a Pittsburg/Bay Point-bound train to travel through the Tube. You will need to get off the train at 12th Street Station in Oakland and go downstairs to transfer to a special Dublin or a Fremont-bound train.
During the hours listed below, customers who are traveling from Fremont or Dublin to San Francisco and Daly City will need to board their usual train. These trains will be diverted to MacArthur Station. This diversion is necessary because the trains originating in Fremont and Dublin during the hours work is performed will not travel through the Tube. Customers should get off the train at 12th Street Station in Oakland and go downstairs to transfer to a San Francisco-bound train.
We recommend that you adjust your travel plans accordingly to take into account these delays. We apologize for the inconvenience.
SATURDAY, JUNE 4:
Work starts after the last train Friday. Work ends at 7:30 am
SUNDAY, JUNE 5:
Work starts after the last train Saturday. Work ends at 2:30 pm
