BART strike averted (for now, at least)

16 Aug

It looks like the Bay Area has been spared from transit chaos, at least for tomorrow:

BART and union negotiators appear to have reached a contract agreement Sunday night, averting a strike and a Bay Area transit nightmare.

Shortly after 6:30 p.m. James Fang, vice president of the BART board of directors, told reporters that earlier press reports of a contract resolution appear to be accurate.

BART should be running as usual tomorrow, but if you’re a BART rider, you should still stay on alert because ATU’s members still need to vote on and approve the contract. So don’t ditch those back up plans yet and continue listening to the news.
