BART opened an hour late Saturday morning and we are very sorry

BART opened an hour late today and we are very sorry. 

While trains were ready to go at 6am, we didn’t have radio communication between the control center and train operators.  By 7am, BART crews restored radio communication between the yards, train operators and the Operations Control Center and all stations opened for service.

We apologize for this late start and major disruption. We understand riders rely on our service to get them where they need to go.  We want to thank our partner agencies for providing mutual aid during the 6 am hour.

BART does not anticipate this problem causing any further disruptions. We have regular weekend service planned for today and tomorrow.
