This is the first time BART has been suspended due to computer malfunction. Backup generators did not help.

Some other interesting developments at that link. SF muni has shut down the cable car lines due to "inclement weather" and the muni metro tunnel is closed due to flooding at church st. station.

@SFBART All trains are now moving following a one hour failure of an essential power circuit. We apologize for the inconvenience this outage caused.

 Quoting: tarfonwxx

If the 3rd rail goes down on the whole BART system, this would be due to a problem with PG&E. I know this because I used to work at BART.

This would also explain why SF muni shut down the cable cars and the muni metro tunnel.
