San Francisco-bound BART trains are delayed by at least 15 minutes this morning due to a trackside mechanical problem, a spokesman said.

Crews are trying to fix the problem, which occurred between the Embarcadero and Montgomery stations in San Francisco, BART spokesman Linton Johnson said.

Trains are being single-tracked through the area, Linton said.

San Francisco bound passengers are being asked to transfer on to the Pittsburg/Bay Point - SFO line at West Oakland or Macarthur stations until the problem is resolved.
