gates, so at 5:00, day 1, it was bad. day 2 it was worse and day three the backups are the longest we have seen so far this morning. no metering lights yet and again if you are fastrak user there's still no delay in those middle lanes. we'll have more traffic coming up. day three of the bart strike under way as we speak. after marathon negotiates, union and bart leaders left the table at 3 a.m. they will resume talks this afternoon. we are bracing for another day of traffic delays. mobile5 covering the commute on the roads. kpix 5's da lin is showing us the commute on the water but we start with kpix 5 reporter cate caugiran in el cerrito at the bart station. cate. >> reporter: good morning. the first shuttles actually full and ready to go here. the good news in terms of negotiations is that progress was made. the bad news is we're looking at another day of bay area bart
strikes. last night both sides got back to the bargaining table at 6:45. negotiations went until 2: 45 a.m. we don't know the exact details of what was discussed but union negotiators say there was some progress made and they are hoping for an end to the commuter chaos. >> we hate to see people suffer. so the best thing we can do is get a resolution in the strike and move forward. >> we hope to stop inconveniencing the people of the bay area. >> reporter: one of the reasons talks started again is the governor's move to send two new state negotiators to help. in terms of negotiations, today they won't begin until 1 p.m. so unfortunately for this morning, it's going to be another day of traffic, long lines for shuttles and ferries. live in el cerrito, back to you in the studio. >> talks resuming at 1:00. if today's talks go well, when
could we see trains up and running again? >> reporter: well, anne, unfortunately it won't be quick. it would take actually about 24 hours to get full service for bart. >> there is hope for friday, though. we'll keep our eye on it. cate caugiran, thank you. just about every commute option has been rough. bart brought 4,000 riders to san francisco after doubling its shuttle bus fleet. that is four times as many as monday but as you saw still wasn't enough to handle the demand. ac transit buses are also packed. ridership about double so far this week for them but one place where the numbers are down believe it or not it's the bay bridge. it's on pace to carry fewer vehicles into san francisco yesterday than it did last friday. i think we scared them away. but it's a holiday week, too. fewer people of course are commuting this week. part of the problem was just getting to the bridge yesterday. downtown san francisco was
gridlocked. here's mike sugerman with some very frustrated commuters. that's bush street that leads three-quarters of a mile down to bumper to bumper traffic. this is first street. see that little green sign the entrance to the bay bridge, i can walk faster than these cars are going to get there. >> he wasn't kidding. some drivers said it took them two hours to go a mile on battery street just to get up on the bay bridge. rate now the strike is also trying the patience of commuters trying to take ferries across the bay right now. kpix 5 da lin joins us live from alameda one of the several locations with long lines to get on a boat to get to work. good morning, da. >> reporter: good morning, frank. yeah. we are at the alameda main street ferry right now. you can see down there, about 6 or 7 folks waiting right now. the first ferry to leave this terminal is at 6:00. most of these folks showed up in the last 10 minutes. they want to be here an hour
before the ferry leaves so they don't have to wait in a long line. steve just got here not too long ago. you would take the fruitvale bart but today you're here? >> yeah, usually take the 6:30 or 6:45 bart train and i get to work around 7:10. but because the bart is on strike, i have to get up be here two hours early just to get to work at 7:00. >> reporter: what's going through your mind now waking up so early? >> adapting. i have to go to sleep earlier. so everything i have to do i have to get down sooner. it's a huge inconvenience. >> reporter: thank you, we have numbers from the san francisco bay ferry that runs this terminal here. so on monday, the numbers that we have is 18,000 people traveled one way using san francisco bay ferry.
tuesday the number dropped slightly about 400 passengers. but they expect again this place to be very busy again as well as in oakland and the san francisco ferry building. mobile5 is driving around checking out the commute. as you can imagine, 5:00 around that hour still very early. not a lot of folks up yet. but in terms of morning commutes, folks are getting ready here in alameda. for now live in alameda, i'm da lin. i'll send it back to you. >> okay, da. nice job, thanks. not only is the bart strike affecting commuters. it may also have a costly impact on the environment. the pro-business group bay area council estimates the added traffic congestion is generating nearly 16 million pounds of carbon. yesterday the group said the strike could cost the bay area economy $73 million a day. of course stay right here with kpix 5. continuing coverage of the bart strike and the negotiations which should get under way again today. we also posted a strike

at capacity before 7:00 this morning. one commuter we spoke to this morning says it's about time this strike comes to an end. >> i got up at 4: 30. i got home last night at 12:00. so i'm running on 4 hours sleep roughly and, you know, won't get back until 4 or 5 tonight so it's not my optimum thing. it's definitely a pain. >> reporter: bart is adding an additional 7 shuttles to the walnut creek area because of the high demand and we condition stress enough how high of a demand these shuttles are. back out live in el cerrito, we also have our share of union picketers trying to get their message heard at the station, as well. so again, this is a busy location here this morning. so we are encouraging east bay commuters if ac transit or these shuttles are your alternatives, please show up here before 7:00 this morning. back to you in the studio. >> cate caugiran live for us in el cerrito, thank you, cate.

400 people depending on the boat. i believe this one can carry 400. so it's in good shape right now. a lot of these folks say they are having to get up very early, about 2 hours ahead of their typical wake-up time, just it make sure they get to work early. let's take a listen to some interviews that we had not too long ago. >> i got to just cut out sleep. you know? got to go to bed wake up extra early. it's time that's the only thing. >> it takes a lot out of your life. i'm not going out to dinner or anything like that or meeting friends or anything like that right now. >> reporter: by the way, they are having ferry service pretty much every 45 minutes. a boat comes every 45 minutes. the first one to leave alameda, the main street ferry terminal, is at 6:00. after that, 6:45, every 45 minutes or so. these folks -- this guy take a look even brought in a chair just to kind of wait right here. and on that side, there's a
little mobile food truck right here, offering coffee and goods. business is good because the san francisco bay ferry has experienced three times the amount of riders that they typically get on a typical day so the bart strike bringing a lot of folks who use the ferry service here about six bucks one way. live in alameda, i'm da lin. back to you. >> thank you. stay with kpix 5 for continuing coverage of the bart strike and the negotiations. we have also posted a strike survival guide with commute alternatives on kpix.com. like bart, ac transit and its union workers resume their talks, as well. the worker contracts ran out midnight on sunday the first of july but the union voted to avoid a strike and keep talking. the major union concerns worker safety and plans to replace sheriff's deputies assigned to ac transit with private security guards. developing news from cairo live pictures from tahrir square thousands of protestors are gathered there right now.
