BART BATTLES COMPLEX PROBLEMS

Since Bart opened, its cars and automatic train control systems have not operated properly. Until electronic problems in the Trans Bay Tube system are overcome, hopefully by September 1974, the transit system operates in two parts and ridership is not as high as it should be. Defects in the automatic, computer controlled operation have led to a series of train failures, derailments, etc. However, BART hopes to have these problems solved within eight months. The car problem is just as serious as the electronic problems. On some days over half the cars are unserviceable.
