The power is turned off to parts of Sydney's train network and there are "major delays" on every line except for one amid a police operation at Redfern Station.
At Milsons Point, city-bound commuters were advised to walk over the Harbour Bridge, while the Transport Management Centre confirmed some services had been delayed for over an hour.
In a tweet, Sydney Trains confirmed the police operation was "ongoing" and there was "no forecast" for services resuming in the area.
In a statement, Sydney Trains said there was a "trespasser" at Redfern, which is among the Harbour City's busiest stations.
The ABC understands there is no threat to people at Redfern Station.
"NSW Police ordered all services be halted and overhead power switched off while the situation was resolved," the statement read.
"Emergency services are currently on the scene."
Sydney Trains said the Southern Highlands line was the only one not experiencing delays.
"Customers are advised to delay their travel or seek alternative transport," the statement read.
Commuters on trains that were between stations are stuck until the situation is resolved, with some people takin to social media to complain the air conditioning had stopped working.
It's understood Sydney Trains will shortly begin restoring power to the network.
The Transport Management Centre said the delays were expected to affect services throughout the day.
Real-time public transport apps are showing some services running between 30 and 50 minutes late.
