BART delays on Sundays

Pleasanton BART service will be affected as track maintenance is performed between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Sundays through March 17.

Blue line trains that normally operate between East Dublin/Pleasanton and Daly City will instead only run between East Dublin/Pleasanton and 24th Street Mission Station. Service between Daly City and 24th Street will be provided by one train every 20 minutes instead of two. Blue line passengers traveling to and from Glen Park, Balboa Park and Daly City will need to transfer to/from yellow line trains at 24th Street.

Eighty teams are taking part in the 2013 Special Olympics Basketball Tournament on March 3 and 10, and 400 volunteers are needed to help Amador Valley High School Athletic Boosters, which hosts the event. Venues include AVHS plus Pleasanton, Harvest Park and Hart middle schools.

To register, email, with your name, address, phone number, adult or age if under 18, indicate any group you are with, and when you are available -- all day, morning (7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) or afternoon (noon-5 p.m.). Also indicate your job preference: referee, team escort, lunch, setup, volunteer check-in or medical.

For more information, contact Special Olympics Coordinator Ken Mano at 846-4381.
