BART – Service has been restored throughout the System – Summary Update – 2pm, Sunday Sept 13, 2020

At 5:10 a.m., one of the dozens of BART’s field network devices failed, disrupting the operational communications network. The system went into fail safe mode and shut down.

‪Engineers and technicians worked to located the failed device and to restore communications functionality.

‪Service was restored in the East Bay by 11:40 a.m. and full system restoration was complete at 12:20 p.m.

‪Engineers have implemented a configuration change to the network which is expected to protect against future device failures that could potentially shut down the system.

‪We, at BART, apologize to the public for not being able to provide service this morning. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
