bart_generic1.jpgA trackside equipment problem is causing major BART delays this afternoon, a BART employee said.

The problem occurred in San Francisco but resulted in delays throughout the system, according to BART.

As of 4 p.m., there was no estimate for getting trains back on schedule.

The current delays are not related to an earlier switch problem near Colma, according to BART.
