4:02 am
last couple of days, all morning team coverage regarding the strike, best routes available right now, lauren johnson at the fernrock station, steve keeley at 30th street station, but we do begin this morning with bob kelly. good morning again. >> hey, gang, good morning, everybody, 4:02, guess same old same old. nothing changed. i thought i talked to bob brady last night, thought we were going to have different scenario this morning. but, unfortunately, it is day number three, and looking live right here, this is route one northbound, up in bucks county, some left over construction. look at the fog, in the background, that's going to be a factor for this morning's commute. no problems at all here on the benny. the thursday checklist, kinds of the same. be ready for those crowded trains and the platforms, again, today. get your tickets in advance. yesterday, folks definitely tried something different on day three, so with day four here, be interesting to see what's going to happen as far as the volume. now as far as parking options, the same deal applies as the last couple of days, ten bucks, for ten hours, at the select ppa parking garages.
4:03 am
we have the list up on our website, also, put it up on facebook, twitter. the ppa offering some slack, giving you an extra hour slack time on your meter. so that you don't have to continually run out there or maybe if you park three blocks away it gives you some time to get from the office over to that meter. what's not running, the city buses and trolleys, the market frankford line, the broad street subway, what is running, the regional rail line. now, that is where we've seen the biggest delays over the past couple of days yesterday, we average anywhere from 30 to 45 minute, at the height of that rush hour, the norristown high-speed line is running, the suburban buses and trolleys, again, running in the suburbs, but not crossing over into the city limit, paratransit, operating of course with some delays. sue, i mentioned it this morning, we haven't seen any rain during the septa strike. tell us what you got. >> not for this morning, but later on this afternoon,
4:04 am
things could be changing. so, we have in your weather by the numbers eight out of ten. because of the temperatures, it will be pretty nice, but you might be dealing with some fog this morning, look, zero visibility in pottstown. what? half mile, 5 miles, i should say, in philadelphia, quarter mile in lancaster, we also have some fog in wilmington, not that bad yet, but sometimes this gets worse before it get better. so we'll keep an eye on it for you right now. seeing some clouds roll in. see the rain that's coming our way, a lot of it is in the great lakes right now, and it doesn't look like we will get a lot of rain, but whatever we get, will be a little later on this afternoon. 58 degrees right now, very mild start to your day, sunrise time is 7:33. fifty's, just about everywhere, couple of temperatures in the 40's, but we look at the day, see little sunshine, maybe, right before that rain hits, we will get close to record high with 78 degrees, guys, that's the best part of the day. the temperature.
4:05 am
>> that's the best part, thank you so much, there, sue. so, at times, we thought maybe there would not be another rush hour, where we had the strike still in effect. we seem like we were getting close, but no cigar on this one. >> day after day after day. negotiations ended shortly after midnight, 12:15 to be exact. are the two sides any closer to a deal? lauren johnson joining thus morning, fernrock station, i guess the good news, both sides still talking to each other? >> they are still talking, thomas. yes, they are talking, they're trying to negotiate, so close, but so far away. so we found out yesterday around 12:15, that's when everyone decided to push back from the negotiating table. late last night, sometime around 11:00 the septa board chairman sent out a statement calling on the union leadership to negotiate in good fate. the union said it was not ready to respond but it would at some point. new sticking point in the negotiations that we had not heard publicly until now is an issue with cameras and record times. the union want recording times limited. septa says, they want to be
4:06 am
able to review more of the recordings before and after accidents. and of course, the talks, still surround pensions, safe working conditions. political lead verse been showing up at the center city sheridan, all week, to monitor those negotiations that could put the nearly 5,000 workers back to work. >> are we close at all? are we any closer than we were earlier? there are hundreds every thousands of people wait to go see what goes on in this hotel. are we any closer than we were this morning? >> keep working, that's we are doing. >> went back to the executive board. i'm sure they did some tweaking, they did some tweaking, coming back at it again, as long as, the key is talking, they got to talk. >> septa leaders have said they would seek injunction to force workers back on the job for election day if the strike goes into next week.
4:07 am
negotiations are set to resume this morning, at 11:00 a.m., which means, this morning's rush hour will still be a headache for thousands of passengers all across philadelphia. >> every day commuters hoping today will be the day that both sides reach an agreement. certainly hope so. lauren, thank you, of course we continue our team coverage this morning from 30th street station. >> right out to steve keeley, of course, where we have the regional rail converge willing, what's it like right now, steve? >> reporter: lauren, i would say, out here, at 30th street, it sounds like the negotiations are not going like the morning weather today, as you look at the flags, not a breeze, are they? so we look around, we see the bicycle racks getting fuller faster, a lot of people are using them, free parking by the way, and then a lot of the cabbies tell us they're work ago lot longer but we ask, are you making mormony? no. because even though they are picking up peak, and there is no problem getting fares, because of the traffic build up throughout the day, they can't drive many people, because they're just setting in traffic.
4:08 am
so they might make couple of more bucks with the meter running, but you got frustrated passengers in the back, who aren't going to be in a tipping mood after being so angry sitting in traffic in a cab. so, this is just one of the many spots where we're seeing frustration from everybody dealing with the strike, not just riders of septa, but people dealing with the riders of septa. >> it is really frustrating. and it is really -- it makes my day a lot more hectic. everything's just like, you know, like it is kinds of like my whole day is surrounded by my transportation now, it is like i'm not really thinking about work and stuff as i much as i should be. >> get to go work. >> yes, because so worried about get to go work and getting, you know, getting my transportation right. >> well, we are standing outside 30th street station. i can't help but to show you the height of irony with this
4:09 am
construction sign. septa strike day three. big men working time on day three. >> hopefully they will be working and get this all worked out and get us some contracts so we can get with a getting around easily. >> let's hope so. time 4:09. looking at other news regarding this strike. >> we've had so many delays, so many of the subway lines, we had big problems yesterday on the media elwyn regional rail line. well, it is back to service restored there. it was suspended because there was a police investigation. there was a person who was hit. it happened at the angora station. >> passengers traveling inbound between second ann and university city stations will need to board from the out bound platforms. also, happening today, jurors in the bridgegate trial. they are going to be back in court. bridget kelly, and also bill barone has been in the hands after jury for several days already. two former aides to governor chris christie have testified that they thought the lane closures on the george washington bridge three years ago were all part of a traffic

4:17 am

4:32 am
week, 884,000 trips, 400,000 riders. so, 400,000 folks looking for alternate means of transportation, again today. the regional rails on a normal day make 130,000 trips and have 65,000 riders. a lot of the 400,000 from here, trying to fill any of the empty seats on regional rail trains, kind of gives you idea how many people are impacted by not only the work stoppage, but then, factor in how many folks typically drive on the schuylkill and 95 every day, that, again, are feeling the impact, so everybody's getting a taste of this septa strike here on a thursday morning. the crowded trains, the platforms, again, this morning, get your tickets in advance, again, there is going to be no cash collected on the trains, try, try, try, and ask again for those flex hours, i mentioned it yesterday, will the 30 would be good time to
4:33 am
shoot for if you want to delay your trip, maybe plug in the laptop, work from home today. but if you are going to be headed out the front door, sue, i think umbrella has little partner you will need it potentially later this afternoon, i would say any time after 3:00 for most of us is a time to start eye on the sky for some rain. we have eight out every ten today in your weather by the numbers. because of the rain expected, socked in in pottstown, lancaster, trenton right now, and it looks like that will probably spread before sunrise, i think most of this fog will burn off after sunrise, 5-mile visibility at the airport. and here comes the rain ahead of the cold front, some of that rain is what delayed the world series game last night, then we will get it eventually later today. so, for right now, it is 58 degrees, so unusually mild for this time of year. 7:33, your sunrise time. other temperatures, 54 in mount pocono, very mild, in reading with 52, and where it is fog any lancaster, it is
4:34 am
50 degrees. and we're in the 60s unusually, in wilmington, to start your day. with a warm wednesday, high of 70 degrees, yesterday, going beat that today, and get close to a record. the record for today is 80. it was set in 1990. we will get close to that before the rains hit. so, one more warm one, guys, but don't get used to it. >> all good things must come to an end, sue, thank you. 4:34. following that breaking news out of south philadelphia this morning. police say a burned body has been found on passyunk avenue under 76 eastbound. this was very active scene. steve keeley joining us. steve? >> reporter: yes, this is right on the schuylkill, forget passyunk avenue, right on the embankment of eastbound 76. uncle see the firefighters up there, right on the embankment. and so where the cars are coming, they got numerous 911 calls, that there was a fire along 76. people thought it might have been a car accident or something up there. or car flipped off the bridge, the fire department comes along with the police department, and the fire department puts out the fire,
4:35 am
and as they look at what was burning, they see it was a human body right after 3:30, 3:00 this morning, and then they realize, the police department that is, they know this area, they realize there are mattresses under there, this is where homeless people sleep. they know people are up here. the question is they don't know whether it is a men or a woman, and it does appear to be an adult body, they don't know if there was any trauma before somebody set this body on fire, meaning, was somebody stabbed, shot, strangled, beat tone death. did somebody have an accidental fire? they have no clue. so they just removed the body out of here. they have take ten to the medical examiners office. and you got to figure how does somebody do an autopsy on burned up body and figure out whether anybody killed that person ahead of time. but medical examiners have a way of doing their science, and they'll try to get to an answer. but, right now, they've got mystery of burning body on 76 eastbound at passyunk here in
4:36 am
southwest philadelphia at 2:30 this morning, and again, good thing people see something, and say something, or who knows what would have occurred with this fire burning, maybe somebody would have just put itself out, nobody ever would have noticed anything until somebody stumbled across this. so we've got possibly a murder mystery here right at the walt whitman bridge entrance. so if you know this area, you will know that big green sign, if you're in this area, going over the south jersey, this is where we are, where the fire department still is busy and the police department will hold this as a crime scene for sure. thomas, karen? >> this happening just two hours ago, still very active scene it, will take some time, steve, thank youment back to the septa strike. couple of sticking points we need to talk b pensions, work safety, now surveillance cameras. those are the main sticking points in the talks between septa and the union. >> so, it goes on. it is day three, strike three, still out when it comes to mass transit right now. very frustrating. so let's get down to the latest on negotiations, we have lauren johnson, telling
4:37 am
us all about that, good morning, lauren. >> good morning, karen, it was wishful thinking yesterday. when everyone heard they were close to striking deal yesterday evening. well it, all fell through, late last night, and it is not going to happen. so yes, in day three of the septa strike, passengers still frustrated. the negotiators went home last night, septa seems to be slightly frustrated, pace of the progress, board chairman saying in a statement that the strike should be an option of last resort, he goes ton say, too much is at steak for either side to fail to fully engage in the negotiating process. for the first time, we heard about specifics in the deal septa is offering the union, for one, the transit agency is offering to remove the compensation cap, and enhance the pension benefit by 8%. as for wage increases in the proposal, average employees annual salary would increase from 68.5 to 76.2, thousand dollars, over the course of five years. >> real close proposal last
4:38 am
night, coming back, sure they'll tweak it little more, and septa still here, coming back to talk, still moving back and forth, and try to get it done. >> pensions still? >> pension still the major issue, trying to work that out. and i'm optimistic this they k i thought it was pretty close last night. so we're close. they're close which is really good. >> with a would be really good is if everyone could get their lives back to normal, it is the nightmares for so many people forced force to find alte ways to work and school. everyone is expected back at the center city sheridan around 11:00 this morning, which means, day three of the septa strike, passengers brace themselves for pretty frustrating day, karen, thomas? >> more and more plans this morning, all right, lauren, thank you. five days until election day. new polls show the race is at dead heat. pole by abc and the washington post finds hillary clinton and donald trump tied at 46%. according to a quinnipiac university swing state pole, near battleground, pennsylvania, clinton leads
