BART - On Strike Again

Hundreds of thousands of BART commuters, stymied by a midnight strike by rail transit workers, headed out before dawn Friday to try to snag extra buses and ferries or to battle mile-long backups at the Bay Bridge.

The Bay Area Rapid Transit system, the nation's fifth largest, normal serves 400,000 riders each day.
