All BART stations “closed until further notice” due to system level IT problems

BART commuters will have to look for an alternative method of public transport today.

All trains were delayed by a system-wide cyber problem early Sunday morning, failing to operate as expected before the stations opened at 8am, according to a declaration shared by the agency on Twitter.

Now, stations across the Bay Area will remain “closed until further notice” as BART officials mediate the problem. Partner transport agencies including Muni, AC Transit, VTA, Tri Delta, CCCTA and WHEELS will provide bus service in the meantime and replacement routes can be found in the Travel planner on the BART website.

AC Transit will provide Transbay service on Line F from the intersection of Center St. and Shattuck in downtown Berkeley to the Salesforce Transit Center in downtown San Francisco. Oakland commuters can take the NL line from 20th St. and Broadway to the same destination.

“The staff are working to determine the root cause,” BART said in an update at 9:10 am, “We don’t have an ETA yet on when this will be resolved.”

At 11:18 am, SFMTA acquired five BART passenger shuttles between Glen Park, Balboa Park and Daly City BART stations. Muni will too to provide service from downtown San Francisco to Mission St. to Daly City on line 14R.

“We will continue (continue) to diagnose the problem and trains will be strategically moved to parts of the system for staging when service resumes,” BART forwarded in a later update.

This is an evolving story and will be updated with more information.
