ACE service impacts

Major commuter railroad lines running through the Tri-Valley were on track to see service interruptions by the end of the week, as of press time Wednesday, due to the railroad worker labor negotiations making headlines nationwide.

A service alert issued from the Altamont Corridor Express (ACE) on Tuesday afternoon updated users on the status of its routes. With national railroad work stoppage, many routes are to be suspended, impacting passengers from Stockton to San Jose on ACE including through the Tri-Valley.

"There has not yet been an agreement between the freight railroads and the employee unions," said David Lapari, marketing manager of ACE. "We are working closely with Union Pacific to address the impact of a strike on operations and will continue to keep our passengers informed as this situation develops."
