BART riders at both the Lafayette and Orinda stations stood out in the cold, rainy weather today a bit longer than they expected and certainly longer than they hoped for.
A major equipment problem near the Lake Merritt station in Oakland caused delays on trains heading into San Francisco from the Lamorinda stations. The delays began around 8:00 a.m. and many riders were actually told they may want to get back in their cars.
The problem was fixed around 11:00 a.m. While service resumed in that direction, there were still delays for much of the day.
