BART braces for another transit protest in San Francisco

August 29, 2011 | 11:17 am

Bay Area Rapid Transit police arrest a man during a protest at the Civic Center train station in San Francisco. 
Bay Area Rapid Transit officials are warning commuters to brace for another round of protests and BART station closures in downtown San Francisco during the evening rush hour.

The protests, which are expected to begin at 5 p.m. Monday, would be the third round of service disruptions in as many weeks, stemming from the July 3 fatal shooting of an intoxicated, knife-wielding transient by a BART police officer.

BART officials suggest that commuters consider finding other ways in and out of downtown San Francisco and check 511.org and BART's website for service announcements.
