BART service resumed into San Francisco Friday morning after the disabled BART train was cleared from tracks at the West Oakland station, but the broken train caused severe delays throughout the system, BART officials said.

The disabled train was heading to San Francisco airport.

There were major delays throughout the entire BART system.
