BART won’t be running regular service from North Concord on Monday

Testing over the recently past weekend ended with BART making the decision to keep running shuttle trains between Pittsburg/Bay Point and North Concord stations, but trains will not be running regular service between the two stations Monday morning, officials said.

Last Saturday, BART conducted tests and announced that it would start running normal service, but that could not last long because of the persistent issue. The train system has been struggling to determine the source of voltage spikes that have been plaguing BART's East Bay line for weeks.

Following the testing over the weekend, BART spokesperson Denise Gonzalez had said, "This is part of our testing to reinsure we can return to regular service without experiencing any problems."


Train service between Pittsburg/Bay Point and North Concord stations has not been operating normally ever since voltage spikes damaged as many as 50 train cars. The problem was first detected on the morning of March 16.

Since the detection of the issue, BART users have had to depend on shuttle buses to commute between the Pittsburg/Bay Point and North Concord stations.
