While commuting in traffic coming home from a day of work in the city can often lead to delays, BART riders have been facing many delays recently.
The delays tonight were caused by a protest in San Francisco that shut down access to four BART stations in the city, delaying thousands of people trying to make their way home. The protest lasted nearly two hours and left stations closed nearly as long.
The protesters were protesting BART’s decision to initiate a cell phone blackout last week that BART put in place to stop a protest over a police shooting.
