Possible BART strike on Wednesday 7/6/05
So the BART strike is set for Wednesday of next week if they can’t agree with a new contract. Which comes in quite an inopportune time for me, since I’m moving house — from an area where BART isn’t needed, to an area where BART would very much be part of my routine (it is near the Balboa Park station, incidentally). But as I could also take the J Church or the K Ingleside, I still have alternatives.
However, I imagine there are many others that aren’t as fortunate. As CD pointed out, 511 lists several alternatives in case you are one such affected individual. One of the suggested methods is 511’s RideMatch carpool setup, which matches up those who want to organize a carpool. I personally haven’t tried it myself, but Craigslist’s Rideshare listings might also be of assistance (might be a good option for those who don’t have a car, and are willing to pay for gas.)
I too anticipate gridlock if the strike happens. So I guess we’ll all be waking up a little earlier on Wednesday (or arriving later for work), whether we be commuters or drivers.
