6:00 am
bart and the unions were unable to hammer out a contract agreement before workers walked off the job. we have coverage starting with abc7 news reporter, matt keller, on the picket lines. >> a couple more striking workers showed up. they have been picketing since 4:00 this morning. they are going all day long. what you will not see, though, is running trains. the last train running came to a stop at the fremont bart station this morning. how did a week of intense negotiations end with a strike? talks broke down after 30 hours of negotiations. the members were on board with wages and pinks but can now agree to work rules. i spoke with a union worker about what he would like to say to the riders. >> i am so sorry. we do not want to see this happen. we hope they make it to work
6:01 am
safe and come home safe to be with their families. >> i would like to come back out here with police officers escorting a man from the scene here. there are four police officers and a man. he calm up and said he was trying to get to work and was upset at the bart protesters. the striking workers. he picked up a cone and threw it so they are taking him into custody. you can see the workers of still striking. they are adamant about being out here and will not let one person take away from the picketing lines. bart management says the work rules would give them the right to make decisions of staffing overtime and work assignments and workers say it could unfair work assignments. >> thank you, matt. now the commute with leyla gulen. >> there are alternate ways of
6:02 am
getting around. we have supplemental service including san francisco bay ferry and sfo shuttle, and west cal, so tune it to our website for all the details. we have the entire lineup of options available so you can see how you will get from point a to point b. we do have plenty of traffic especially if you are headed through oakland and over the bridge. the altamont pass is packed through tracy into livermore and toward dublin. highway four through antioch is a pain. we had an early report of a stalled vehicle westbound side of bay bridge as you make the exit from the tunnel it looks like that is cleared and it is out of the lanes and now we are just jammed. 25 minutes gets you in the westbound direction. 580 is looking better so if you take the round about way it takes through the not bay and
6:03 am
across the golden gate bridge and you are seven minutes from richard to san -- from richmondo san rafael. from emeryville camera looking to the bay bridge, it is packed making the commute in the westbound direction of the mike? >> i am feeling bad for all of those people there. it is going to be tough. here is our live doppler 7 hd you can see exactly what is going on as far as the cloud cover. we talked how the clouds will develop along the coast and visibility is lower by the my at half moon bay. about two miles. any clouds that make it beyond the coast are going to stay in san francisco through 7:00. we will be sunny by noon and 68. and 65 during the evening hours. we will see stars and need a light jacket. inland neighborhoods, we are the same as it has been for the week and chilly and in the 40's but warming by 30 degrees already by noon and mid-70's and topping out at 80 by 4:00 and tall back
6:04 am
to 70 in the evening. the coast is different today with mostly cloudy conditions, upper 40's and we will see increasing sunshine but we will never get rid of all of the clouds and the temperatures are cooler and mid-60's. kristen and eric? >> okay. >> all is forgiven, we continue our coverage with our bigger problems. in walnut creek abc7 news reporter, amy hollyfield, is there. >> we do not is lines here, katie, at this bart station. people are climbing on without any problems. the agent here tells me he has three more buses scheduled to come to walnut creek and this is a busy station. he will try to get some more and maybe steal some from lafayette where the crowds are not so bad. i heard back from a commuter on the 5:00 a.m. bus and she said
6:05 am
it took 35 minutes to get to the city and the bridge was starting to get busy. that is for information to file away for future reference if this strike continues. these buss are shuttling people from east bay to san francisco, from 5:00 to 8:00 a.m. this morning and they bring you hope from 3:00 to 7:00 and although the crowds do not seem too bad people seem rushed. >> i am frustrated. very frustrated. every day and i just stopped checking the news. i am just frustrateed. >> here are the stations to catch the buses: el cerrito, west oakland, concord, walnut creek, lafayette, dublin/pleasanton, san leandro, hayward, and fremont. look at what the agents are doing, the bart workers. they are handing out passes to the people climbing on board. the passes are the ticket to get
6:06 am
home. you should not expect to be able to grab a bus this afternoon out of the city if you did not take the u.s. into the city. it is round try experience. the hope is to get 6,000 people accommodated today on the buses. bart usually handles 400,000 people a day so this shouldn't going to cover it but they hope to make a difference. >> the bart strike continues the west g.d.p. avenue approach to the bay bridge in oakland will be converted to h.o.v. lane for transit buses so only buses, car poolers and commercial trucks will be allowed to use the on-ramp to the bay bridge for the duration of the bart strike. a.c. transit plans to run more buses during the time and deploy larger buses for traps bay -- for transbay buses. >> caltrains will stop at the millbrae station to pick up passengers that can park for free at the bart station there.
6:07 am
>> if you are driving to work, car pool lanes hours on interstates 80, 880, 680, will be extended from 5:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. at all available c.h.p. officers out in force to make sure the commute is as smooth as possible. >> we are watching all the bay area roads and we will check with our engineer on the road with cell7 technology. >> it looks like he is stuck at the bay bridge toll plaza. dick? >> that is the story, eric. i am stuck on the road with cell7 technology. i came in from emeryville on highway 880 a short while ago. it has taken 15 minutes to get from powell street to emeryville to where i am now and i am still about quarter of a mile or less prior to the toll plaza. the traffic here is bumper to bumper and stopped. all the feeder ranches, highway
6:08 am
580, 880, that feed the toll plaza are extremely slow if not stopped and bumper to bumper at best. i can say the car pool lanes on the left side and the right-hand side are still moving at pretty much their speed limit. both the fast track lanes and the cash lanes, as you can see ahead, is pretty much just brake lights across the roadway. >> eric and katie? >> thank you. we are following the latest developments on the commute without bart. keep ituned right here. you can download our free abc7 news app and allow push alerts for the latest information. we have assembled a change of resources at to map the commute including alternate transit options and real time traffic maps. you can download the exclusive abc7 news waze traffic yap to navigate the freeways and follow
6:09 am
us on twitter@ >> leyla gulen? >> there are plenty of sticking points. speaking of mass transit, we have other agencies that will pick up some of the slack for bart. ace train was using the pleasanton to fremont line to hope passengers on number three train to get from point a to point b and they will take folks from fremont in the evening back to tri-valley for the commuters. we have other transit agencies trying to help out. we have a low maze to talk about that dick was talking about at 21 miles per hour for a top speed westbound direction and 880. it is totally packed. making it to the bay bridge toll, the berkeley drive is slowing down quite a bit, indeed, and outside we will look
6:10 am
at walnut creek and we are at nine minute commute and this is her than normal but, really, nine minutes gets you from highway 4 to the 24 junction. >> the temperatures are in the mid-to-upper 40's in the san ramon valley specifically walnut creek at 47, and same in concord and warmer at brentwood and pittsburg at 50 there and in half yet. we will start in the not bay: low 40's. a lot of low 50's an the bay shore until you get to mountain view at 53. fremont is 48. san jose is 50. the same with hayward and san francisco. 51 in los gatos and 46 degrees. the week ahead if san jose, we are starting out with temperatures above average today, sunday, monday and tuesday and closer to average wednesday, thursday and friday. it is a minimal pattern change but we will be dry for the
6:11 am
better part of the next ten days. the three day planner into the weekend and next week, we have baby steps of temperatures pulling become and we will finally get back to average around the bay and inland middle of next week. until then, we should be warmer-than-average with 70's and 80's. katie? >> thank you. >> member, more on the tough task of getting to work without bart. >> ferry boats will pick up the shack during the strike. >> new details in the death of a 16-year-old in the asiana flight 214 at sfo are uncovered by the abc7 news i-team. >> this is a look at the san mateo bridge where we starting to see a little bit of backup but cars are still moving. we watching all the major briggs and highways and friends to let you k

it is a rough friday morning commute without bart running. we have a special feature, the corner box, you can see right now we have abc7 news engineer dick epstein is stuck at metering light. you can keep track by watching the small box in the corner. without bart trains running, waterways are filling up and the highways. nick is at the ferry landing in oakland. nick, how does it look? >> pretty good. commuters have started to arrive early. i accosted my guess. you usually take bart. how did you ajust your schedule? >> i got up an hour and a half early than usual. i am having to do that because if they were running trains based on management, i would take the ferry anyway because the workers are right. >> talk to me. what do you want bart do know?
6:16 am
>> i want bart to know that i think it is unfair they put this last minute rule change in the contract when both agreed on all the compromises in terms of compensation and why is it at the last minute you put if all the chains which is going to effectively eliminate workers rights on the job. it is ludicrous. >> you are not a liberal with an agenda? >> a radical. >> get to work safely. what we have learned is that commuters are on both sides of the issue. what we are doing as we want the commuters to know as they come to the ferry landing and take the ferry to san francisco they immediate to purchase a ticket before boarding. i spoke to other commuters at 6 :30 we will introduce you to some of them. >> thank you, nick. no buying tickets when you are
6:17 am
on the ferry. you have to purchase tickets before. >> and you may have noticed one of the fog horns on the golden gate bridge was stuck so a continuous alert for a full hour and people were calling 9-1-1 and some of them claiming aliens were attacking the city. >> not yet. mars is not attacking yet. they unplugged it and that is why the sound went off. >> a look at traffic. no fog horns involved in the traffic. here is leyla gulen. >> even the fog horns are upset about the strike. we could hear a few regular horns on the road. i hope everyone is respecting everyone else and realizes we are in this together. back to the altamont pass, we do have this report of an accident westbound 580 at greenville road and it is blocking one lane. we have a bit of backup and it looks like the other traffic we had over the altamont pass is slowly easing up.
6:18 am
we are praying that it will be a friday light and we will keep our fingers crossed. i looked at our waze app and it sounds to be minor. if you are headed between walnut creek to dublin it is clear. 101 from san francisco is nice. through the santa cruz mountains, not too bad. we have sky 7 other the richmond-san rafael bridge and look how empty it is. it is wide open. the cars are making their way through the toll plaza. you and see where the cars are going and they are making the commute in the westbound direction and it would be nice to get that perspective, it is a much better drive than over the bay bridge and now taking at least 30 minutes to head in the westbound direction from the maze and across into the city. this will take a huge amount of instruction off of your shoulders, a nice beautiful commute in the westbound direction. we have company out there but
6:19 am
everyone is moving loan at top -- moving along at top speed. >> you are watching the traffic and i am watching the moon. >> i noticed that, too. >> different perspective. full moon tonight or tomorrow of the i think tomorrow. it will be clear and most areas you can see it. live doppler 7 hd is tracking cloud cover along the coast. it did develop and some of it is trying to spill across san francisco with visibility down to four miles and half moon bay and five in santa rosa and the low clouds try to public across to the lower valleys into the 101 corridor. from the tower to the north you can see the low-lying areas of northern san francisco up toward the presidio and that area is getting cloud cover. as we head into the afternoon, but for the coast it will be sunny and warm, warmer-than-average, above averages this weekend but for the coast, and the slow cooling
6:20 am
trend if everyone next week and still do not see any rain the next seven to ten days. milpitas and santa clara, sunnyvale, upper 70's and gilroy around 80 to 82. santa cruz will see sunshine but 74 degrees, the same in millbrae and much else in the upper 70's to near 80. great day to be outside. the clouds open up and we call it at partly sunny and mid-60's. at your beaches, not so bright as it has been or as warp, -- warm and mid-60's. union city and oakland at 78. most of the temperatures in the east bay valley will be in the low 80's. we will look at tonight's temperatures, they are cool again like they have been, but notice the lack of clouds along the coast, you are cooler than this morning by five degrees. are you going do half moon bay?
6:21 am
the big art and pumpkin festival at 43rd annual? both days, 9:00 to 5:00, there is a 7:00 pancake breakfast and temperatures are in the 40's and 5259 9:00 and mid-to-upper 60's for the better part of afternoon and increasing sunshine today. the seven-day forecast, let me get out of the way and show you the decreasing temperatures, the temperatures will drop down into normal levels by early next week. katie and eric? >> 6:21. next on morning news, new developments in the murder of an oakland federal investigator and the man charged with killing her. >> taking a look at traffic conditions outside the san mateo bridge. look at that: we do not normally see a backup like that at this time of the morning but we have extra cars on the road. hi. i'm henry winkler.
