INSKEEP: This is news from late last night. A deal was announced ending the four-day strike that had stranded 400,000 riders of Bay Area Rapid Transit, also known as BART. BART management called the deal a good one for union members while allowing for new infrastructure spending on the rail system in the future.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
This was the second strike to hit BART this year alone. BART officials say some trains will be running for this morning's rush hour with fuller service expected to be restored by the afternoon. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
