Commuters pack into an AC Transit bus on October 21, 2013 in Oakland, California. BART workers continue to strike after contract negotiations between BART management and the transit agency's two largest unions fell apart last week. Management and unions agreed on the financial specifics of the contract but differed on workplace safety rules. An estimated 400,000 commuters ride BART each day.
Today in the San Francisco Bay Area, the BART strike enters its fourth day.
The two sides involved in the transit strike have mostly agreed on economic issues but have reached an impasse over work rules. For more on this and a fatal train accident over the weekend, we're joined by Dan Brekke, news editor at NPR member station KQED in San Francisco.
