Bay Area Transit Officials Plan For Potential Strike

Bay Area transportation officials are planning for another possible BART strike the second week of October. Shuttle services and extended carpool hours are just some of the plans to alleviate traffic congestion if a strike does take place. But as transit officials plan for the worst, it's possible they could end up wasting nearly $1 million dollars in nonrefundable deposits for alternate transportation if a strike is called off. Today BART union members spoke out against their employer and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, calling some of the contingency plans a danger to public safety.
