4:33 am
adjust their commutes. the b.a.r.t. fremont station which used to be the end of the line, sees just under 9,000 rider exits a day. embarcadero b.a.r.t., close to 48,000. we spoke with warm springs riders who tell us the new station is saving them a significant amount of time in their morning commute. what does that do for your level of stress? >> drastically reduced. it's a lot nicer station, too. >> more relaxing, a better commute. >> i can actually finish breakfast with my family in the morning and just kind of have a little nicer morning. >> i'm not stressed out. now my commute, i have a routine, so i'm more calm. >> more calm. >> yeah. >> so what's next for those b.a.r.t. riders and others? b.a.r.t. is working on a ten-mile extension south of

4:35 am
out. people nearby as well as her coworkers wrestled the man to the ground. at one point, the video shows him being kicked in the head. he walked away before police got there. once out of the mele, the woman took a picture of the man and his car. police are using that information to identify the suspect. >> 4:35. the search continues this morning for suspects involved in a brazen attempted robbery in walnut creek. happened last week, but we just got these surveillance images. three men dressed as construction workers walked into the oc watch company. one of the suspects handed a clipboard to the owner of the store. when the owner looks down at the clipboard, the suspect pepper sprayed him. then the man broke into a display case with a bat. the store owner and a nearby customer managed to scare the men off before they got away with anything. >> 4:35 right now. come with us. let's go to washington as we head to capitol hill and time is running out on negotiations to come up with a continued
