A looming strike by BART employees has the city of Pleasanton thinking about how it can be prepared for that scenario to play out.
City Traffic Engineer Mike Tassano said the traffic engineering department and Pleasanton Police Department are "working in tandem with BART and the Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA), which operates Wheels buses, on a contingency plan.
While labor negotiations continue, midnight tonight is the end of the contract extension for BART workers. If no deal is reached at midnight, the two sides could either negotiate in good faith or seek a 60-day cooling off period that bars strikes and lockouts.
Temporary bus stops for Wheels have been named in the event a strike occurs, Tassano said. He added the police department's motors/traffic division will manage traffic flow and any impacts that result from the temporary bus stops.
