FREMONT (KRON)–BART experienced significant delays on the Fremont and Warm Springs lines Thursday morning after a maintenance truck derailed.
BART officials issued an advisory around 4:30 a.m. and notified commuters of the major delays. The maintenance truck was designed to move along the tracks.
Trains ran on a single track between Union City and South Hayward due to the disabled vehicle.
Crews worked through the morning to repair a damaged third rail caused by the incident. BART officials said the scene was cleared around 8:30 a.m. and trains are running at a reduced speed.
AC Transit is providing mutual aid to shuttle passengers between Union City BART- Bay Fair BART at this time:
Bay Fair-Hayward: Lines 10, 32, 93
Hayward-South Hayward: Lines 86, 99
Union City-Hayward: Line 99
Major Problem #BART delays continue up to 20min
They hope to have repair work wrapped up by 8AM. You may want to hop on AC Transit @rideact or just drive to work instead. Plan ahead pic.twitter.com/8M0GkB3g63
