BART attempted to use a generator, but that did not work.

BART announced the South Hayward BART station would remain closed until the end of service. Trains were not stopping at the South Hayward station; they were either continuing southbound to the Union City station or northbound to the Hayward station.

A bus bridge was set up between the South Hayward and Hayward station so commuters could get to their cars.

The power outage was caused due to a PG&E power failure which also left 7,075 customers in Hayward and Union City without power. At 7:45 p.m. power had been restored to all customers except the South Hayward BART station.

PG&E says the power outage was due to an underground equipment failure.
