As of 2pm, all Caltran service to and from San Francisco has been restored. Service was suspeded due to time overruns from a bridge replacement in San Francisco.
At 2:45pm, VTA paged us that service on the 26 bus line in San Jose on Curtner between Highway 87 and Monterey Highway is affected by a street closure. Passengers need to board the 26 at either Monterey/Curtner or Curtner light rail station.
Finally, service on VTA’s 35 bus line in downtown Mountain View is running 10 minutes late due to street repaving on Vila Street.
At around 8:30am this morning, word went out that all northbound Caltrain service was being turned back at Bayshore station. The cause of this was unexpected time overrun on a railroad bridge replacement project in San Francisco Friday night that was due to end early Saturday morning, before the first northbound trains reached San Francisco.
As of 1pm, Caltrain is running shuttle buses from the 4th & King station to the Powell Street BART station. Caltrain is also advising passengers to transfer to BART at the Millbrae station and take any East Bay-bound train to San Francisco.
No ETA yet on when full Caltrain service to and from San Francisco will resume.
