OAKLAND, Calif. — Commuters in the San Francisco Bay Area got up before dawn Friday and endured heavy traffic on roadways, as workers for the region’s largest transit system walked off the job for the second time in four months.
People were lined up well before 5 a.m. Friday at a Bay Area Rapid Transit train station in Walnut Creek for one of the charter buses BART was running into San Francisco. And traffic at the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge toll plaza into San Francisco and the roads leading to it was backed up for miles.
The walkout began at midnight Thursday, the culmination of six months of on-again, off-again talks that fell apart.
