BART service restored following computer problems


BART service restored following computer problems

BART resumed service Monday evening following computer problems in the Operations Control Center. We expect full, regular BART service to continue Tuesday Aug. 9.

This was not a safety issue as computers that control train movement continued to operate normally. The monitoring system that allows managers to view train movement was not functioning, and a preliminary review revealed that a router problem was preventing operational data from reaching the monitoring system.

During the delay, which began at around 7:35 pm, trains in service were moved to nearby stations so that customers could get off. BART ran very limited service using radio communications starting at about 8:40 pm and also arranged for mutual aid services from AC Transit and Muni. Service advisories and real time departures on the BART website were also affected. Service resumed at approximately 9:52 pm.
