6:04 am
get on. i suspect a lot of them weren't normal rail riders. they were here because they knew the buses, trolleys and subways weren't going to be running today. some people were caught off guard at midnight when the strike went into effect. we saw buses finishing up their routes in the city, leaving passengers at their designated bus stops, instead returning back to their stations. it left passengers scrambling this morning as well as overnight. >> when did you get this all figured out? >> 4:00 in the morning. >> are you worried about the commute home at all? >> yes. >> it's my job to send out a bus or shuttle. >> as we were doing our live report, a train actually arrived right now. i'll give you a look on the inside. the front of the train is completely filled up with passengers. it looks like there's some standing room only that's available to people trying to get on the train right now. again, that's where that extra

close to a deal. they've been working at this for two years. >> we're pretty far apart. we are going to stay here and go upstairs and keep seeing if becan get it done tonight. i'm not optimistic we can. >> septa released a statement on the strike that read in part, septa negotiators stand ready and willing to continue bargaining to negotiate an agreement that will end the severely disruptive work stoppage. we are hopeful that a tentative agreement will be reached before election day. with a week to go, septa says it may ask a judge to stop the strike in order to allow voters to get to the polls. the last strike seven years ago lasted for six days. these guys who have been talking say they hope to get back on the job as soon as possible. live in west philadelphia, matt delucia, nbc 10 news. stay with nbc 10 for continuing coverage of the septa strike. tap the nbc 10 app for our septa survival guide. we have updated information on
