>>: sometimes i take a bart. i usually take ac transit with this mess i might use some that just lose some loyalty to bart after desperate >>terisa: if you share with me there is a car stuck on the tracks. my guess what they're trying to drop somebody off and got stuck on the tracks over there. it looks like it to a truck is going to be needed to get them out of there. >>darya: it seems like people are kind of panicky had tried to get to their destination. >>: i don't think it's much of a panic but it's very stressful for everybody. everyone is trying to do the right thing. >>darya: you can see behind me that the line is starting to build here at the ferry terminal. basically as i
was mentioning the line gets along. we have another boat that has just showed up here. the boats are run every 45 minutes. they're going to try to move 20,000 people through the ferry system all day long. and there are plans to go into a weekend service. they have enhanced service as well. reporting live at jack london and square terisa estacio kron4 knows. the dow muff was check-in with george raft. something that you said you've never seen on 880. a >>george: let's start with our live camera view of the toll plaza. it is interesting because there is a lot of space opening up at the center. they say most of
the people are not regular commuters. this year are just out there driving because of the are jamming up the approaches let's take a look at the approach to the bay bridge here is the e shore freeway 24 backing up now and to the caldecott tunnel for the westbound ride. and north bound 880 jams appear from well before 980 trying to get up to the e shore freeway and try to get up to the westbound bay bridge. drive times are over half an hour something else is going on here there was an accident on the approach to the bridge so that traffic on this band is moving pretty well but here you can see south 880 leading to
westbound 92. hayward traffic heavy. and remember we are still on the talking about seven minutes after 7 so we are very much an hour ahead of schedule and we should be looking at friday like conditions. so the ride on 680 southbound heavy from to 42. to 8085 lighter than usual >>james: the 7 08 we will take a quick break with our continuing coverage in the meantime one to show off some pictures that were sent by you our viewers out there showing us pictures of the
sprint will share them with others. maybe it will help somebody. send your pictures to us at the kron4 dot com. we have breaking news at kron4 for the mobile apple why your checking the traffic if you hit submit button you can send pictures that way. festival can live here at the big traffic jam of the approach to the bay bridge.
bart workers are on strike this morning. the announcement was made yesterday evening. we have team coverage all morning providing you with the latest drive times and the best ways for you to get around the bay. and the traffic is severely impacted. your address is same updated with of the best way to get around if there is the best way permit
>>george: look at this 880 ride. jammed solidly through high street. the e shore freeway is backed up all the way along the lower e shore. here's a look at the toll plaza. and fulton a little bit but it in notice period goals are fasttrack lanes at what we've observed is there aren't enough fasttrack car is getting through to be able to fill and to the center of the toll plaza. that's indicative of the fact that you have a lot of people here that normally don't commute. that are clogging it up paying cash. not one of the things caltrans was going to do have all the lanes fully staffed as early as 4:00 this morning. but
fasttrack plans to take longer are. that's one of the reasons why it backed up. that 880 back up is really bad. >>darya: sometimes i like asking what would you do george. >>j.r.: it's really nothing i can say other than what go to the bay bridge. but if i had to drive and from say even berkeley i wouldn't go anywhere near. you couldn't pay me to go to the pay the bay bridge this morning for it to the san mateo bridge not doing as badly. now continuing with a look at the ride through the rest of the bay area it's having on 8680 here's where we thought we would see extra heavy traffic and indeed we do permit its on district of
580 have air-traffic here try to get to 580. try to get to 880 and try to get to the san mateo bridge. south bay freeway is not that bad. that's the light friday ride and so is the commute. let's get a look of how you can get around now was check-in with erica and the weather center. >>erica: well sfo will be running free shuttle service. there's another stop for real at the s f ferry dock installed city. it will be running into the airport. sam trans will also be running some buses for you. and you can catch that at the nsf. for those of you
who generally take care bart ac transit stepping up. they will be offering a connection kron4's jackie cecil is live at the nelson riddle del norte station were bart riders are having to take shuttles and looks like bar protesters are also there. i wonder how have the riders been reacting. j >>stanley: this is a good news and bad news situation the good news is that there's no lines. and fact there's a parking lot basically a third full right now. there hasn't been any lines. there's been more
protesters there riders treat the bad news is that those uc right there is the second to of last obamas you will see. the last bus that will run out of this and after this they will shut down the service completely. they've rented buses are ready this morning for people who needed to get into san francisco. these were direct route buses for it after that not sure exactly what. after that they say people are going to have to find another way to get to the city because these. ida's ones and how people were feeling. >>: tired >>: san >>: frustrated >>: ridiculous. >>darya: that pretty much sums up how people are
feeling out here. this is the second to last bus. about two-thirds full. it can see they are actually waiting for more people to show up this is going to be a great location for people but it ought to understand because they're all running tam buses it took time for buses to go over to san francisco and give back right now it's pretty quiet. >>: our team coverage continues at its kron4's mike pelton is at the walnut creek bart station with a more on the charter buses that are available there. >>: the second to last a
bus is just pulling and. i'm told bart management they did to care what additional bus on now there are two more buses that will take you into san francisco. they can only accommodate just over 100 additional people here's a scene from earlier as hundreds of commuter's lined up. commuter's tell me what one man i spoke to is frustrated. >>: it's awful. i have to
get up at 4:00 in the morning to find out if i have to going to work and it's awful. >>: it is important to note that all these aboard shuttles are taking directly into san francisco. there will not make a stop. it has caused them some confusion. if you are considering taking a shuttle officials and you better get out the door. but can only two buses left and when you combine all the buses that they are running this morning. their only able to serve about 6000 people. that's just a drop in the bucket when bart normally serves 400,000 people. we will be back with

writing and to kron4 this morning sharing their drive times and more important to their comments on the situation. monterey says " maybe i should walk out of my classroom and stop teaching today. i haven't had a raise in seven years. bathetic. fire them and hire people who work for a decent wage. " on the other hand stella says hire all the workers. -test fire all the workers. higher those who want to work. " stephanie also contributes by saying " i am completely frustrated and fed up by a bart. " shame on parts for holding the bay area hostage for their greedy benefits. " a lot of people have been writing and. if you want to share your comments or your drive times a visit our facebook fan page.
>>darya: the talks continue. the union workers say they blame bart and they said they are being forced to strike. bart says they walked out and either way, they walked out on you. i mean are right. you the commuters are left in this mess. like erica said continue to share your story. it could be very helpful to others. we'll be back with more of our team coverage in just a few minutes.
estacio has banking and a live and not on at jack london. let's get an update from her. >>terisa: you can see for yourself. the line here at the ferry terminal at jack london and square stretches all the way down here and then we will. throughout the day not so bad. they're moving them quickly. every 45 minutes and there's a ferry terminal for its they have enhanced service able to instead of the normal six boats. people here are not happy. people say that they've had enough. they just want to get to work. >>james: with the following the buses with the following the ferries. people have to
pack their patients and abundance of this morning. >>: the first ferry has already taken off at the alameda main stream up terminal. amex capacity 300 passengers got up early to make for sure they were on the first ferry. they're doing by the numbers as ferry operators are catching each passenger on line to make sure they don't go over that 300 passenger limits. in lieu of the bart strike instead of leaving every hour on the our fear is well and depart every 45 minutes. that is until 1145 of this morning. how's it madyun on the kron4 nose. in >>darya: 736 is the time and we've been looking at a lot of people who started their commute at 435 this morning. a lot of them are stuck at the bay bridge approach.
to go through the fasttrack. more people. even if they don't have fasttrack. can you do that? >>: tucana but if you don't pay and don't sign up you'll risk not that-year risk of getting a fine. at the golden gate bridge you don't have to stop and there is no penalty even if you don't have fasttrack. here at the bay bridge if you drive through with out fasttrack you are subject to a fine or violation unless you sign up with a certain specified period of time. and if you normally don't drive your car. i can understand why you might not want to have fasttrack because you do have to pay in advance for your fares. and they do hold your money. now which you want to do with this morning. might be a good reason. but that's what will happen. if you don't have fasttrack and drive for one of the fasttrack only lanes.
the ticket snapshot of your license plate sending you a notice to pay a toll. >>george: up with these backups now. this is the interstate 80 approach. this is the 24 approach to the bridge street with this nimitz freeway. backed up through downtown oakland. i don't remember seen this before. this is quite unusual to see it this traffic print to the san mateo bridge well we've passed the tipping point. this is not the result of an accident not the result of a stall this is too many cars and not enough lanes as alternate to the bay bridge this morning. it was bound happen and it has. let's
look at some more east bay traffic quickly. 580 still a lighter than usual ride here. heavier than usual. south bay freeways are a little heavy but nothing to compare with what's going on on the east bay and the north bay ride is still very light under 30 man's. from a bottle to the bridge. >>james: thanks a lot george. stay with us. we will be back with continuing coverage in just a couple of will be back with continuing coverag[ female announcer ]f come to jcpney for our lowest ices of the seas. get doorbusters this frid at 3pm to saturday m. like, $14.9jcp and a.n.a sweaters for r, $17.99 allasic guys arizonaeans 50% off all samsonite lugga,

some point this morning it has slowed down a bit because it took so long for people to get back on those buses. unfortunately this is all last one. i have had a chance to talk with riders this morning and i think this first lady it pretty much sums it all up. >>: this off. this is what the second third time. that's-pissed off. i will let i would like for them to get this resolved at 3:00

come back to the kron4 morning news. i have two words for you bart strike. a lot of our viewers seem to be enjoying their other options for its looks like rebecca weill says she took the ferry from jack london nsf. the ferry workers were friendly and helpful they serve cocktails on the afternoon of ride back. we have another comment from mark murphy. they should have the servers all the time for it much more comfortable and clean it. something bart isn't. you can visit our facebook fan page to china man. we will be tracking your commute when the kron4 morning news
hour by hour its sam's the back of its worst. you concede that jamming up as people are trying to find another way to get to work because of the bart strike. but also take a look at the san mateo bridge which is also jam packed with commuters this morning and so are the ac transit riders. but a kron4's will tran and oakland with an update. >>will: over the past three months this is the second- over the past three minutes this is the second bus this is why you don't see so much congestion. you can see people are hopping on these lines are gone for now but i can tell you they quickly fell up. let's show you video that we shopped around 530. there were long lines. at the time as well. i was back here in july and
it looks like playing lines were long. unlike back in july they were leaving we didn't see that until around 8830 back in july. you can see. this bus is ready to pull out of here at the downtown bus depot and here is another bus. ac transit lot of people still coming down here. looks like there during their bus. grow quickly a man are you a bart rider? >>: asked her if debbie about what time do usually catch ride--bart. about around six. >>: what's going to your
mind this morning. obamas hectic and stress. forget about the time deal got here. think about the timing had to be up. just to be here. we are tracking the passengers. we have asked several passengers as soon as they get to san francisco to give us a picture and let us know how long the journey is from oakland to san francisco. many people told us this is the easy part. the harper could be coming and the afternoon. >>darya: guess the right coming home is going to be a tough one kron4's terisa estacio joining us live now from jeff london square with more there. >>terisa: the lines are building as we speak. you can see behind me this is
what it looks like at this hour here at the jack london square. the ferry terminal print wasting an extremely long lines. you can see right over here we have a bold this is one of a boat from six normally. i can understand that people are cranky and grumpy. i think that is the moved-moved of the day. people are getting up hours early. earlier than normal. just to get to work. they are san this is frustrating to deal with. there is parking but they also tell me to be patient.
say at the san mateo bridge is your normal commute route you should consider heading south to the dunbar and save yourself some trouble for it but have back to the traffic maps for a quick survey of your weather. a little sluggish share on six '80s out. that's still lighter than in normal commute day. as is the ride through the san ramon valley. heavier traffic traffic westbound into castro valley. the nimitz freeway very apparent
this is my favorite one. it's upside down. oh, sorry. (woman vo) it takes him places he's always wanted to go. that's why we bought a subaru. (announcer) love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. age 11 and are developing story we continue to follow your commute as friday morning with no bart trains running. . some bart riders took advantage of of their cars of changing the delay car pool routes. looking for someone to jump band and that demand more cars waiting for passengers. i'm just having now. there are usually more people at this time today waiting for the casual car pool. people have to figure out what they've wanted to print sometimes
how are you feeling? >>: they need to get their act together. this is ridiculous. >>: i'm not to happy about the strike. i'm a lifelong democrat . >>: you hear of the frustration from bart riders. talks broke down very quickly and the bart unions calling for a strike leaving riders with another way to try and find a way to
get around. >>george: what i've heard is there isn't a lot of sympathy for the transit workers. that seems to be the feeling that i'm getting and certainly they've taken a lot hostage's this morning. the backup is are really getting any better. what we have this morning as a lot of commuter's that are paying cash. the backups of
all they have approved considerably 580 is still have the e shore is still have a a 80 in the northbound direction is still have a. by this time on a normal friday we would have likely send a note back appear. we might catch a break and be back like we will see some improvement here. a quick survey of
every traffic. will show you the 680 ride. it looks a great spirit highway 4 looks great. the rest of the south bay freeway still look good and the north bay ride is essentially a problem free care for the southbound 101. thus check-in with erica. jassem alternate for real >>: the good thing is we have a couple of alternate for it as a fall will be providing free shuttle bus service. you can catch them from the phnom greg caltran.
creek a bart station where they have the service. what's going on there now mike. >>: tired and frustrated sums up how people feel here at walnut creek. management even had a hard time filling up the final bus as it seems like the biggest crowds came very early this morning. here's the scene as hundreds of commuter's lined up to get a guaranteed seat on one of 14 charter buses here in walnut creek. as you might imagine these commuters are not having a good morning. these early
morning east bay shuttle buses will take you directly into san francisco and that's caused some confusion for commuters. some of them thought they could get dropped off at berkeley are less oakland but that is not the case which created quite a bit of inconvenience for some commuter's this morning. as frustrated as they are they do hope that somehow this is all resolved by monday. >>: we will be right back with our continuing coverage. temperatures do it's great having at&t u-verse high speed internet.

alarms because--we have this strike in affect. as i amendment, which you can see is the around the corner the parking filled up quickly. but most people have been dropped off here. they were already at fearing the worst. they also had raced to get one of the ferries that are taking off. speaking of which, they have enhanced service to rock the entire weekend. this is going to be within 45 minutes argillaceous. most people stated the there are grateful that they do have this enhanced service but bottom line everyone stated that they just want to strike 10. >> actually, we can talk
>> as say commuter, i know this usually happens but we really wish it would not have happened now. >> i get where they are coming from but i just do not know. it is a tough call. i think they just need to figure out a way to get this settled. >> lucky for us, it is friday and we hope this can be done by monday.
>> both sides need to come to when the agreement. they have to just give us some type of concessions. >> the passengers are the ones that are going to be paying the salaries than they did. >> i blame management because they always with a surplus reported >> i had to drive from hayward and bid up two hours just to get in touch san francisco. >> i do not want to take a side, i just want to go to work. >> i am brain and that it will go back to the table and resolve this quickly. god bless them.
>> this is a rereal thought out responses. these were people what the fremont bart station who worked someone off this morning about the strike. >> michael yaki is joining us now. >> what do they need to do to get a deal done? >> if this goes into next week then this may go on for a while. i think a 40 hours is a time or they can better up and decide to get back to the bargaining table. i think the only way is that people all sides of the talks need to get involved. it may have to be the state legislature or the governor. osmanliand there rely on the ste
for their funding and to finance their system. at the state is involved and use their legislation that they can threaten to require collective bargaining. they can threaten to outlaw them striking. on either side i do not think it want that but if we had more leadership from these folks, i did we can get them back to the table and monday the trains will be running. i think this is the most optimistic solution that can happen. but it will require people to step up to the plate and talk tough and let them--here is the alternative periodsomeone else comes along that does not have interest at mind and take this initiative and completely does something that will cost millions of
dollars. this does not help. the threat of this is that the ability of people to make that threat or to at least-testis is the keys to get them back at the table. the next 48 hours are key. >> it seems that desperation--when things get done, we just heard people that work pretty patient. this is not going to change until next week. i think everyone gets a little bit more agreeable to a deal as time goes by when they are frustrated career >> i think there are both sides making that calculation. the bart workers are making a calculation that the public will be so bad that they will put pressure on them to make a deal. bart management on the other hand is stating that everyone will be met
at they can legally, impose a contract at some point. that is there a remedy and this could really cause some problems down the road creek this, that right now they both are trying to decide whether or not they can work out the deadest not want to be helpful to the business is in the bay area and to the people will need to go work. especially, it is and commence for a lot of us. what if you do not have it car and you do not have a job that allows to work from home. they cannot afford anything else and they have no other alternative. these people, they should keep those people in mind. >> the estimate is but this is costing $70 million a day for the strike. >> if you want to talk to
michael you can't go on his twitter page at yaki-blog. >> we are ed tent to tent and there is some type of change of the toll plaza. things are still backed up. by that, i mean that most of the people who are paying cash. look at the 880 approach. this 880 approach is still backed up in all the lanes of the eastbound side. this is a pretty tough ride must still coming from the maze, but conditions of slightly if you are heading to the bay, you will still be approaching an 18 minutes back up. 24 since starting to back up from a rock ridge
and a 580 interchange. spite this is mostly because that's as here's the hard the san mattel of bridge has seen an improvement because things are back to 13 to 15 minutes. there was a new problem with the house spot on to 37 in the south bay it was westbound at first and the ride has been backed up into fremont. this is because of the bart strike. a quick check from the golden gate, 1 01 southbound they have added a third line. >> we continue the coverage we will now go to jackie sissel who was live from the el sausalitcerrito bart station >> they did this with dozens
strike led them all go and hire new people who want to work. unions are a thing of the past. >> claiborne tweeted, the only thing i can say is that i lik, i like about the bart's strike is that edition give up our day-to-day routine. malign >> stephanie tweeted it affects people who do not even use bart. they are lucky they still have a pension. get done, followed nike's advice, just do it.
