BART strike has commuters scrambling


Bay Area commuters crowded onto buses, ferries and freeways Monday as BART workers went on strike for the first time since 1997.

The transit system’s workers and management ended talks late Sunday agreeing only that they remain far apart in contract negotiations. Instead of reporting to work, BART union employees were carrying picket signs outside stations, and trains stayed in the yards.

That meant a commute juggle for people who ordinarily ride BART, which carries 400,000 riders on an average weekday.
