Pittsburg/Bay Point Line Saturday Delays in January and February


Pittsburg/Bay Point Line Saturday Delays in January and February

THIS INFORMATION HAS BEEN UPDATED:

The scheduled work planned for this Saturday between Lafayette and Pleasant Hill is being extended to include Sunday and may include additional stations. On both days we will be working in different areas as our crews perform necessary track maintenance. To keep delays to a minimum we will move our track crews in groups so that we can keep areas limited to one track for as short a time as possible. By concentrating our work teams on one line for the entire weekend we expect to accomplish more work in less time and provide a more comfortable ride as a result.

On both Saturday and Sunday 1/25 and 1/26 you may experience delays of 15-20 minutes as we perform track maintenance between Rockridge and Pittsburg/Bay Point. When we are performing this work trains will be operating at a reduced speed in the work areas for safety. 

We realize that service delays are frustrating. Unfortunately, the limited time available in the overnight hours doesn't always permit us to complete all the work we need to perform. We are committed to providing safe, reliable and comfortable service to the entire Bay Area and appreciate your understanding.

We are doing track maintenance between Lafayette and Concord stations on the following Saturdays in January and February: 1/11, 1/18, 1/25, 2/1, 2/8, and 2/15 between 8:30am and 3pm. You may experience delays up to 15 to 20 minutes. 

In some cases on 2/1, 2/8, and 2/15 you will be asked to transfer trains at Orinda Station and/or Pleasant Hill. When transfers are required you may experience a 20-30 minute delay. 

To minimize delays and avoid the chance of transferring, use Orinda Station which will have regular weekend service to Millbrae/SFO throughout this work. To view a .pdf of this bulletin click here.

We make every effort to schedule this important work at times outside of regular commute hours in order to minimize disruption to customers’ schedules. Unfortunately, because of its complexity, this work cannot be done in the narrow time window when there is no service.

You may notice trains travelling slower than in the past. This is to ensure safety when we have workers near tracks. We realize that this change may slightly lengthen the delays you experience. We appreciate your patience as we work to keep providing you with the high level of service you rely upon.
