BART has resumed service between the East Bay and San Francisco as of 3:45 p.m. Commuters using BART should expect delays throughout the remainder of the night though, as trains will be running slower than normal.

BART service was completely shut down this morning after tracks were melted at the West Oakland station due to a fire at a construction site near the station.

Representatives from BART believed trains would not be running again until at least 5:00 p.m., but repair crews were able to fix the damage quicker than expected. A test train was run around 3:10 p.m., and once the tracks were deemed safe, trains began running again.
