State Republicans try to pass bill preventing BART strike BART train

BART and one of its unions will continue negotiations at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

BART says it remains $112 million apart with its two largest unions.

Transportation officials are already planning ahead in case there is a strike. They released a $21 million strike plan this week.

It includes free charter buses, extra carpool lanes, and limited transbay train service run by BART managers.

The 60-day cooling off period ends on Oct. 11, which is the earliest a strike could happen.
