BART trains headed to the East Bay from San Francisco are about 15 minutes behind schedule as the system recovers from an incident this morning in which a train came apart inside the Transbay Tube.
Trains headed to San Francisco and the Peninsula were on time as of 8:30 a.m., BART spokesman Jim Allison said.
A nine-car train was headed through the tube when it separated into two pieces shortly after 6:20 a.m.
A five-car section of the train was removed first with the operator on board, Allison said. Another operator then boarded the second, four-car portion, and moved it out of the way as well.
The tracks were inspected and determined to be safe, and normal service through the tube resumed at about 7:25 a.m.
