Today, BART travelers will have to look for an alternative method of public transport.
All trains were delayed by a system-wide computer problem early Sunday morning because they did not work before the stations opened at 8 a.m., the agency said in a statement shared on Twitter.
Gulf stations will now remain “closed until further notice” while BART staff mediate the issue. Partner transit agencies, including Muni, AC Transit, VTA, Tri Delta, CCCTA and WHEELS, will provide bus services in the meantime, and alternative routes can be found in the Travel Planning on the BART website.
BART remains CLOSED until further notice. Look for alternative transportation options. Partner transit agencies provide bus services throughout the BART service area, including MUNI, AC Transit, VTA, Tri Delta, CCCTA and WHEELS.

AC Transit will provide the Transbay service on line F from the intersection of Center St. and Shattuck in downtown Berkeley to the Salesforce Transit Center in downtown San Francisco. Travelers to Auckland can take the NL line from the 20th St. And Broadway to the same destination.

“Staff are working to determine the root cause,” BART said in a 9:10 update. “We don’t have an ETA yet when it will be allowed.”
By 10:54 a.m., SFMTA said it was in the process of acquiring four BART passenger shuttles between Glen Park, Balboa Park and Daly City BART stations. Muni will also provide services from downtown San Francisco to Mission St. to Daly City on line 14R.
This is an evolving story and will be updated with more information.
