Update from Bay City News Service:Limited BART train service is expected to begin around 6 a.m. this morning, according to BART officials.
Supplemental charter bus service is also being made available to commuters this morning, according to BART officials.
Expanded HOV hours are in effect non-stop today from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. on I-80, I-880, I-680, & Bay Area toll bridges, according to the California Highway Patrol.
BART initially announced Monday evening that the BART strike had been called off and that service would resume at 4 a.m. this morning.
However, BART trains did not show up at 4 a.m. and many commuters are making last-minute alternative arrangements.
BART officials said Monday night that a tentative agreement with striking unions had been reached and limited train service would resume on all lines as early as 4 a.m. Tuesday.
Grace Crunican, BART’s General Manager, said the system should be operating at normal capacity in time for the afternoon commute.
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom lauded both the unions and management for reaching a tentative settlement, but voiced public frustration with the months-long labor dispute by adding that "this has got to be the last time this happens."
