BART set to close Transbay Tube for Labor Day weekend


There will be no BART train service between San Francisco and the East Bay this holiday weekend, with officials closing the Transbay Tube to repair a key section of track near the tube.

Officials are closing the track starting at end of service Friday (Sept. 4) and running through end of service Monday, with regular train service expected to resume for the Tuesday morning commute. BART is operating on a holiday schedule Monday because of Labor Day.

BART will offer limited transbay bus service between 19th Street in Oakland and the Transbay Terminal in San Francisco during the closure, but agency officials warned it could involve delays of up to one to two hours. The West Oakland station will be closed.

A similar weekend closure took place in early August.

Officials encourage travelers to plan ahead, avoid unnecessary transbay travel and seek alternate transportation options. For more info, visit the [htpp:// BART website.
