    BART is experiencing system-wide delays Friday due to a power outage at the Bay Fair station.

    The delays are impacting trains heading in the Dublin/Pleasanton, Fremont, Richmond and Daly City directions, according to BART.

    Track crews responded around 3:45 p.m. to a report of a power issue at the station, a BART dispatcher said. The power issue has resulted in problems operating the track switch.

    As of around 4:10 p.m., the dispatcher said BART crews were on scene working to repair the issue.

    The same station experienced similar problems with the track switch earlier Friday around 11:45 a.m., according to BART spokesman Jim Allison.

    Crews were able to manually move the switch into the correct position by around 1 p.m., Allison said.

    Other issues - including metal debris on the tracks near West Oakland and police activity in Richmond - have contributed to further delays on BART Friday.
