BART plans for possible shutdown over strike

Posted on June 25, 2013

BART officials told the paper the agency is working with regional transportation officials on backup plans if it needs to shut down trains, including operating extra bus service.

However, no dates for a strike have been set and both sides expect to reach a deal. For the full story, click here.
