SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Commuters are having daunting rush-hour trips across the San Francisco Bay Bridge as BART workers continue a strike that is creating headaches throughout the region.
Lines were long for charter buses on Friday afternoon as riders usually dependent on Bay Area Rapid Transit waited to board.
Traffic maps show jammed roads in San Francisco that lead to eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge. Cars were backed up for at least 10 blocks along streets downtown, waiting to cross the bridge.
On Twitter, motorists complained of taking one or two more hours than usual to get home.
The San Francisco Bay Ferry, typically rather empty in the afternoon, carried boatloads full of passengers.
Carpoolers may have had it easiest, since the dedicated carpool lanes remained relatively clear.
