Original Post - October 11, 2013

Please click here to review the Transit Management Association of San Francisco's (TMASF) transit information guide to the potential BART strike.  The guide includes alternative transportation options for those who rely on the BART system for their daily commute to work.  

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and its unions are currently operating service under a temporary extension of the original labor contract that expired on June 30, 2013. On August 11, 2013, a court upheld Governor Brown’s 60-day cooling-off period, which ends at 11:59 pm today, Thursday, October 10. In the event that a settlement is not reached between BART management and its unions by midnight on October 10th, BART workers may go on strike for the second time this year. A strike could become effective by Friday October 11, 2013 during the AM commute period.
