SAN FRANCISCO—Flooding at the Embarcadero BART station caused trains to skip over the station on Thursday, July 18. 

According to, a website and app used for navigating the public transportation system by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, passengers should expect delays due to trains being stopped at the Embarcadero Station. 

The SF BART Twitter account announced at around 7:00 a.m. that trains would not stop at the station because of water falling into the station from the Muni station above. 

The flooding was caused by an overnight test of the water drainage system at the station by Muni that malfunctioned. Muni trains skipped the Embarcadero Station, while Eastbound BART trains stopped at the station after the announcement via Twitter. 

An SFMTA worker took to their Twitter thanking passengers for being patient during the delays.

Trains were back on schedule after 1:00 p.m. Thursday and both Muni and BART trains are back to their normal schedules.
