BART reports death on Dublin/Pleasanton track

NO LATER THAN March 16, 8:45 a.m. BART reported just after 8.30am Dublin/Pleasanton station reopened after a death on the track earlier in the morning. Rail service has resumed on the Dublin/Pleasanton line.

“We are working to get trains back on schedule,” BART said in an alert.

March 16, 6:46 a.m. BART service came to a complete halt on part of the Dublin-Pleasanton line just before 6 a.m. Wednesday due to a fatality on the track, officials said. The agency gave no estimate of when trains would start running again on that line.

There is no train service between West Dublin/Pleasanton station and Dublin/Pleasanton station, the transit agency said in an alert. Dublin/Pleasanton station is closed.

“We are working to establish a bus bridge between these two stations,” BART spokeswoman Anna Duckworth said.

The incident is under investigation.

The service disruption came as BART redline service between Richmond and Millbrae, including San Francisco International Airport, has been suspended since March 6 due to power issues.

The public transport system offers a shuttle service between Millbrae and the airport, and there is a service on the yellow line between the airport and Antioch station.

Orange Line trains run on a regular schedule between Richmond and MacArthur Station in Oakland. If you are traveling between Richmond and Ashby stations to or from San Francisco or the airport, you will need to transfer between an Orange Line train and a Yellow Line train.
