BART: Trains Back on Track After Power Outage, No Delays Expected
|All kinds of outages in Berkeley|
At about 11:15 a.m., a substation in Berkeley lost power when a truck hit a pole and knocked the power out to 27,000 Pacific Gas and Electric Co. customers -- including BART.
BART closed stations and ran the trains at reduced speeds between Ashby and the North Berkeley, officials said. A bus bridge helped carry passengers during the closure.
There were delays until about 1:30 p.m.
"We're back on track," said Jim Allison, spokesman for BART.
So we can expect a smooth evening commute home?
"I'll go out on a limb and say 'yes,'" Allison said with a chuckle.
