BART Strike EndsDownload audio (MP3)
After late night negotiations, the four-day BART strike has ended with a tentative agreement between the transit agency and its two major unions. We discuss the negotiations and the impact of the shutdown on the Bay Area. We'll also check in on the the National Transportation Safety Board's investigation into the deaths of two BART workers who were struck by a train this weekend while inspecting tracks.
