SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP/BCN) — Commuters endured another tough morning commute because of a Bay Area Rapid Transit worker strike. Meanwhile, there were no new negotiations scheduled between BART management and its employee unions.
Workers stayed off the job for a second day on Tuesday, forcing hundreds of thousands of commuters to find alternate routes to work.

Traffic heading to San Francisco on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge around 6:30 a.m. was jammed leading to the bridge’s toll plaza. Lines for ferries and buses appeared even longer than on Monday.
BART obtained additional buses to serve the West Oakland Station and transbay passengers. 36 charter buses were serving the West Oakland-San Francisco bus bridge, double the number that were available for the first day of the strike, officials said.
