they will probably limit that to the paratransit and medical appointments only and lucy loop here in center city is running as well. now, have a contingency plan. i hope you thought about this i can't believe steve talk to a few folks that didn't even realize that septa was considering a strike. car pooling obviously a big option. cab, maybe giving uber a try for the first time. fire up the bicycle. check with your employer for not only flexible hours to void the crunch of the rush her but sit the has offered an employee shuttle. shuttle buses, free of charge, for city workers will run the exact same route as market frankford ape broad street subway line. all you have to do is show your city, employee badge and that shuttle will also be able to get access by folks coming down for jury duty, all you have to do is schedule for jury duty to day, courts, offices are opened, you you can use free shuttle supplied
by the city, all you have to do is show your jury card and in order to get a ride on the shuttle services. the here's an update on some of the parking options. if you do not use september awe will feel crunch because follow thanks do use septa will obviously either drive or get another way in the the city. flat rate of ten dollars for ten hours at all if not all of the ppa parking garages. we have the locations for those garages up on our web site at fox 29.com. so far so good on i-95, the schuylkill expressway, 476, not an issue. coming in from south jersey, you will have your normal commute up and over the ben franklin. patco high speed line is operating this morning. now how this is all going to shakedown in center city for that lets go out to steve keeley live out in front of the jefferson this morning.
>> septa is on strike. the since we started "good day philadelphia", 21 years ago about, i have reported that, four times now. four strikes since we started this show, i am, chris stay on me, i'm 55 years old. septa is 53 years old. i have never gone on strike. just since i was a freshman in high school in 75, septa has had ten strikes. so this is something, my age group is used to. however, you never get used to a mass transit strike. i looked at old inquirer articles from the last strike in 09. it said that they started bad, and got bad and worse. that is what you can expect today. so what we have right now is a strike only about five hours old. they are still talking that is a good sign. other good sign is last two strikes in 05, 09, just six or seven days. the first strike during "good day philadelphia"'s reign in 1998, 40 days. so, there is the history that
tells you what to expect, possibly, coming up. we have talk to willie brown after midnight and talk to a couple commuters after midnight already weren't happy. >> we're pretty farrah part. we're going to stay here and go upstairs and keep seeing if we can get it done, tonight but i'm not optimistic that we can. we have economic issues as far as pensions, you have health care, you also have things like i said, driver fatigue, we need to to something not to have our operators running down the street half asleep. most people they work from 9:00 to 5:00 adequate time to rest. my people don't do that. we have to fight for those rights. >> we're in the same spot waiting for bus and getting kick off the bus. they went on strike at 12:00 on the dot. i don't get home. >> they wait until last minute, and it is not fair for whole lot of people that has
to take the bus home. but i will just change my shift tomorrow, turf go home and start working 8:00 to 4:00. god willing it don't last too long so we can all get to work because we cannot afford to be out of work. >> reporter: so here is the last bus we saw moving, just past midnight and notice above the windshield where they have the route and then suddenly driver flips off the sign and says out of service. he was driving back to the depot. got his passengers off and went on strike with everybody else. it could be a short one. it could be a long one. we have no indication. only good indication from willie brown, they are still talking, even though they are walking. thomas and karen. >> let's hope it is resolved quickly, lot of people waking up with anxiety this morning. steve, thank you. governor wolf released this statement regarding the septa strike...

can actually bring up cosby's prior bad acts against a dozen other women. cosby, hoist expected to go to trial in june 2017 faces three sexual assault charges stemming from 2004 even counter with temple university employee andrea constand. she says that cosby drugged and assaulted her inside his montgomery county home. her story sound similar to that of five dozen others who have come forward accusing cosby of that exact same thing. prosecutors will argue in favor of allowing testimony from the other women to prove that cosby had a pattern of sexually assaulting women and many other cases statute of limitations is now over so cosby cannot be tried in those other states, karen and thomas. >> thanks very much, lauren. also happening today, drivers in new jersey, when you need to fuel up at gas pump you will be paying more. after nearly 30 years without a gas tax hike new jersey law make's proved that 23 cents increase, and that will bring

rush hours you have a better opportunity to at least breathe and get there without going along with the masses. and the employee shuttles for example the city of philadelphia has offered an employee shuttle, buses will be running the exact same route at market frankford and broad street subway. if you work for the city all you have to do is show your city id. if you are coming into town for jury duty just show your junior or card and get a ride into downtown. the city services, everything is opened, philadelphia public schools, they are opened and kid are expect to be in class. we will get a little bit of the break because it is all saints day november 1st, so all catholic archdiocese schools already had a scheduled day off. coming in from new jersey in problems or delays at all but we are starting to see beginning of the morning rush hour, there on the freeway, here's a live look leaving south philadelphia, again, expect grid lock to start to take over the schuylkill, i-95 and streets in the city. the lets toss it out to a
fellow who probably covered one or two more strikes then i have in my day steve keeley live out front of the jefferson station. steve, back over to you. >> reporter: i lived at sixth street right behind independent hall, washington square during the last strike and i used to take septa i didn't have a car back then. i will show you a tricky learn. do you see this bus coming? only bus on the road are new jersey transit buses. they come over bridge and they all stop at sixth ape federal. then they go through center city picking up people. if you are commuting from olde city, you can jump on a new jersey transit bus and get into places around city hall and check new jersey transit schedule and they have plenty of stops. they go all the way up to cherry street all around archdiocese f you ride septa from say olde city or touristareas and go in center sit the eye for a short ride is there an alternative courtesy of my little history with septa and strikes.
ten strikes since 1975. that sound like a lot. can you imagine if we had ten super bowl wins since 57 or ten world series wins, wow. septa headquarters here you can bet, even though it is empty right the now there will be picket signs ape picketers out there later. by the way if you are not noticing this makes two mornings in the the row philadelphians are waking up with bad news. we had eagles late overtime loss yesterday close to midnight and then septa on strike at midnight. halloween need, cinderella story as all of those stories septa buses turn into pumpkins at midnight. here's willie brown and some commuters we talk to since the strike started. >> we have a few very minor things we agreed upon. those issues we could not come to an agreement on. we have conceded. we have been working at this for two years. the thing that gets me the most when you you consider pensions, you asked about the pensions we're not being greedy. i think septa slapped the
public in the face and taxpayers when they told you they will do pension reform. what they did was line their pockets. we found money, here's the money. how do you do pension reform but yet you give yourself, a $500 a month up to a you this dollars a month increase. the that is thiefry. >> i think it is crazy, i really think it is nuts because people, we all use septa system. 800 i believe early almost a million people are affected in this and i really think they need to actually come back on and resume rail service because this is really crazy, it is jussie don't understand why they always need to go on strike because this affect is a lot of people that need to travel to work. they need to go to doctor's offices. they need to go to schools, et cetera. >> i work every day, i work two jobs, i don't know how i get to work tomorrow. it is, what it is. but it will affect everybody out working to pay bills.
