Normal Service Resumes Between Bay Point and N. Concord Stations

Posted on April 3, 2016 at 11:05 PM

After a few weeks of off-and-on, to no, train service between Pittsburg/Bay Point and North Concord BART Stations, normal service has finally resumed, and BART is back on track.


That doesn't mean all problems are fixed, however, as BART still has no idea what is causing the huge power surges on the tracks and taking BART's 'C' cars out of service.


To actually provide normal service to Bay Point once again, BART has moved its 'C' cars to its four other lines and is currently only operating 'A' and 'B' cars on the Yellow Line, which are less susceptible to the mysterious electrical spike.


Will it be like this for a while? Well, until BART can track down its trackage problem between these two stations, this unorthodox 'system' will likely continue.


BART claims the Fleet of the Future will not be susceptible to this electrical spike issue, but the first cars are not expected to roll out until the end of 2016.


For now, BART remains in disrepair, disregarded for years by funding, and is now scrambling to solve its many inherent problems until its new fleet arrives.
