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.
