BART service continuing today

Negotiators still at bargaining table

BART service will be up and running today while negotiations continue between the transit agency's management and union leaders, a federal mediator overseeing the talks announced Tuesday night.

Bay Area commuters will be able to board BART trains starting at 4 a.m. today as normal, despite the looming threat of a strike over the past several days.

"Bargaining continues to take place...the parties have made some progress," federal mediator George Cohen told reporters in Oakland Tuesday night.

Cohen declined to answer any questions regarding ongoing contract negotiations with BART's two largest unions but said, "We are devoting all of our energies...for the parties to reach an agreement."
