Computer error causes BART delay Wednesday morning

A computer error caused BART’s automatic train control system to reset at 10:24 a.m. Wednesday morning, resulting in a roughly 15-minute delay for BART trains systemwide.

According to BART spokesperson Taylor Huckaby, because of the system reset, train operators had to manually control BART trains. Once the reset was complete, automatic control was restored.

The delay was the result of the 27 miles per hour limit on the trains’ speed when in manual mode, as opposed to the normal speed of up to 70 miles per hour.

As of 11:30 a.m., trains were operating normally.
