BART service in the East Bay is running without a hitch this morning after a power outage in Berkeley and a grass fire near Pleasant Hill affected travel into and out of the area, BART central dispatchers said.
The Berkeley station reopened at 9:11 a.m. after trains on the Richmond-Fremont and Richmond-Millbrae lines were passing through the station because of an outage.
A dispatcher said the station was too dark to allow passengers out, but power has since been restored. Earlier, a grass fire near the Pleasant Hill station was causing 15-minute delays in and out of the station. Trains on the Pittsburg/Bay Point-Millbrae line were back on schedule as of 9:30 a.m., a dispatcher said.
