good morning. bart service is scheduled to begin at this hour after an agreement was reached overnight did not transfer supposed to be on limited service starting at 4:00 this morning but that turned out not to be the case. kron4's will tran live at the west oakland bart station with the latest on this tool for the way kidding riders off to work running this morning. >>will: it is so fun to see people finally running to the bart platform because the trains are not running. here's video that we shot 13 minutes ago and you can see here is the train at the west oakland bart station they said 4:00 and then they said 5:00 but then finally
at 547, the train operator said i got word. i'm leaving west oakland station into san francisco. so you heard it first on the kron4 morning news. we can back live now and show you a live shot with our cam to show you people are on the platform waiting for the next train to arrive so that's good news. yes it's late. when people got here it was still close there were just basically yelling through the gates to the ticket agents are you going to open. we heard it was supposed to open the four. he said i don't know and then he told us at 5:00 we brought it to alive when he raised the gates that the trains were now running and then people got here. there were so happy honking clapping and then they got to the bart platform only to see the trend still stuck there in the train operator outside with a thousand miles a year on his face. he
told me personally i can't leave this location because even if i leave west oakland and means nothing if i get the san francisco are some of the other destinations and those stations are still shut down. they don't have the personnel to lift the gates or at least monster the situation which is why he was stuck here for at least 47 minutes or so and then he got the word to go ahead and leave this location. let's see if we can talk to some of the bart passengers will are arriving this morning. excuse me sir. you come over here? did you find out the news that the trains were running a little bit late? >>: yes late last night. >>mark: well you were lucky to not arrive here at 4:00 when the trains weren't running but go ahead and start running. you see he has a smile on his face. rumple the camera off the track had to show you that no one has really taken this
for granted because things could change even though its limited service. you concede this charter buses are still surrounded the west oakland station and it's because they want to feel when the cap because it's not full service right now and a lot of people were still on the charter buses because they came here before the trend last year at 547 but they say at least this is a sure thing.not leave this location because they wanted to be patient to see if the trains running. if so those bus passengers will leave the bus and come to the west oakland station pre pacifica talked more people. excuse me ma'am? did you find out that the trains running late this morning? >>: no i have to stay up late. >>will: how has it been for you? >>: pretty miserable. >>: i went to bed thinking that they would be running at four.
>>will: well thank you so much. running is the word. we're going to monitor the situation. still limited service but limited service a lot better than no service. back to you guys. >>darya: bart gets a deal but who gets the short end of the stick. >>george: the confusion continues. if you are in your car. it was kind of like a strike date and not a strike date. people don't often have to pay for parking. the rest of the car pool lanes. reporter i spoke with caltrans for the extended hours of car pooling. they said we turned off of the changeable message signs as far as we are concerned the strike has been settled so those about a canceled however it's up
to the california highway patrol weather are not to enforce those special regulations. so i called the california highway patrol and they're going to give back to me on that one because no one had actually anticipated that there would be this pick up and getting service cutback-hit club. when it did resume at 4 we ended up with this back up the bay bridge and now the questions that motorists have can i use the west grant's approach we will have an answer from the california highway patrol coming up right after this broadcast we should get the official word from them. right after this report but i can tell you that as far as caltrans is concerned there no longer in operation. i want to move back to the macarthur maze. look what's happened here. westbound interstate 80 jammed up. 580 jamming up

compromise on pension and health-care costs in addition to a workable changes that allow for innovation and input from workers. >>mark: so this is just a tentative agreement. the next step this to ratify the agreement. we will be waiting for that vote for it and if the bart strike is enough or don't forget ac transit drivers are threatening to strike. because of violence on buses of they are threatening to strike. the panel will deliver its recommendations to the governor tomorrow who will then decide whether to issue a 60 day cooling off. as he did with a bart to print their about 180,000 baby rides on a.c. transit. there have already been to agreements reached between the a.c. union and drivers. they will find out tomorrow if there will be a strike this week or if there will
