Bay Area Rapid Transit trains were running on both tracks through the Orinda station Thursday morning after a mechanical problem that caused smoke to billow up from beneath a Pittsburg/Bay Point-bound train carrying passengers Wednesday evening, officials said.
Negotiations are scheduled for Thursday and Friday. Chris Daly, the political director for Service Employees International Union Local 1021, said a strike is possible on Monday.
BART released new details on Wednesday about the agency’s plans to replaces its aging train cars—most of which are 40 years old.
Bay Area Rapid Transit released a beta-version feature for its Internet and mobile sites on Tuesday that gives riders an estimated snapshot of passenger levels when then they plan a trip.
