11:01 pm
day 2 of the strike appears certain, if you are among the transit agency's 400,000 daily riders be prepared. you will need to make alternatives for the tuesday morning commute. you'll hear from frustrated commuters, facing long delays. see who they blame for the strike. but first, the efforts to resolve the dispute, and get those trains moving. live now in oakland, with the status right now. >> reporter: both sides are back in their corners, we're at the marriott hotel downtown, because negotiators for both camps are here. when the time comes, they know where to find each other. workers set down tools and picked up signs, outside bart's maintenance shop in oakland.
11:02 pm

11:03 pm
discuss it, not just to demand more. >> reporter: but the discussions are not even scheduled. governor brown is staying on the sidelines, although his mediators are here. >> the administration expects the parties to meet, negotiate, and reach a settlement. >> they've basically said they've left. so we're ready to meet tomorrow. >> that's not what we said. >> and i said they went to caucus. >> you haven't even bargained with us. >> reporter: that confrontation, as talks broke off, capturing the fuel to the strike. both sides say they're sorry about the strike and both seem to be waiting for the other to blink. reporting live in oakland.

heather holmes live in san francisco, on the evening commute, and what workers faced as they headed home this evening. >> reporter: frank, the commute home still isn't over for some. here it is 10:00. i want you to take a look. there is still a long line here at the transbay terminal. it has been commute chaos, as hundreds of thousands of people flock instead to buses and ferries, and even catch rides with strangers. san francisco's transbay terminal was more like the transbay maze. confused commuters waded through crowds of people, navigating long lines. >> i'm trying to just get home to my four children. that's all i want to do. it's ridiculous. >> reporter: hoping to beat the rush. but others had the same idea. as she stood in line for the bus for more than two hours, she can only hope the strike ends soon. over at the ferry building.
11:05 pm
>> i've been waiting for about an hour. >> reporter: san francisco ferry officials expect to carry 16,000 passengers, compared to the typical 7,000. this is the start of the line for the ferry to harbor bay as frustrated commuters wait to get onboard. the frustration only gets worse here at the end of the line. >> i just hope they get it together before monday. it's a short week. >> thank you so much. >> reporter: the casual carpool pick up spot was a hot spot. for some, while monica martin, today was the first time to catch a ride with strangers. >> i was a bit nervous, but the person i was with this morning was really friendly, and it's actually gotten me to change my mind on how i'm going to continue to commute. >> reporter: for bart martin, that might mean abandoning
11:06 pm
b.a.r.t. commuters tell me tonight, they're strategizing for day 2. reporting live tonight in san francisco, heather holmes, ktvu, channel 2 news. >> more details now. those who traffic the flow of traffic say today was undoubtably the heaviest traffic they have seen in a very long time. at the toll plaza, a lot of drivers were paying cash. we're told the drive from walnut creek took about an hour and 45 minutes. that is twice as long as normal. and the macarthur maze was still backed up at 10:00 this morning. on a usual day, it would be smooth sailing by then. typically carrying 14,000 passengers from oakland, to san francisco. an official told us their bus has probably carried more than double that number of passengers today. public transit alternatives can cost extra time and money. here is a comparison.
11:07 pm
the cost of an adult b.a.r.t. ticket from down to to the embarcadero is $3.15 one way. that ride normally takes about 11 minutes. the ac transit bus from oakland to san francisco is $4.20 one way. the san francisco bay ferry from oakland's jack london square to the ferry building costs $6.25 one way, and takes about 30 minutes. a small group of protesters briefly blocked buses. the demonstrators showed up at the west oakland b.a.r.t. station around 4:00 this afternoon. our camera was rolling, as some of the protesters blocked the buses. union picketers nearby asked the protesters to let the buses proceed. police kept watch, but no one was arrested. >> to see just how bad the evening commute was, we had two ktvu crews drive from san francisco to the east bay, with two redifferent outcomes. both drivers started at 5:00.
11:08 pm
the first crew had no problems. they began at 1st and mission near the transbay terminal. they got onto the bay bridge with little trouble. the second crew had a very different experience. you saw ktvu photojournalist ben cruise crawling through traffic on the 5:00 news with a camera on his dashboard. we put a clock on his trip, starting from green street, and the embarcadero. it took an hour and 15 minutes just to get to howard street. he eventually did make it, and after 1 hour and 54 minutes, he was on highway 24 heading toward walnut creek in pleasant hill. it appears the lesson here is, avoid the embarcadero during rush hour. a group estimates the strike is costing $73 million a day in
11:09 pm
lost productivity. it determined there are 970,000 workers who lost about 2 hours of productivity sitting in heavy traffic. more b.a.r.t. coverage throughout this newscast. in 6 minutes, the rally staged by b.a.r.t. workers this evening. and why some in the public are blaming the unions for disrupting the lives of commuters. we are in the midst of an excessive heat warning tonight. take a look now at mount diablo. a little hazy in the setting sun there after another day of triple digit temperatures, and it's not over yet. there is more hot weather in the forecast tomorrow. ken wayne is live now in walnut creek and tells us, demand for power is at near record levels, asking people to reduce electricity during the evening peak hours. >> reporter: the temperature has fallen to a much more tolerable 84 degrees in walnut creek. we have gotten through this heat wave, up to this point without any big power issues, but that could all change come
11:10 pm
tomorrow. it's not just the inland valleys of the bay area sweltering. for four straight days, many baked under triple digit temperatures. it's now putting strain on the state power supply. >> these temperatures are amazing, and really driving the air conditioning demand. >> reporter: after a morning in the air conditioning, amy millsap was back in the sun with two young energetic boys. it's also part of the plan. >> they tucker out, or burn out a little faster because of the heat, so it allows for a little more restful afternoon, which is nice. >> reporter: at 7:00 tonight, it was still 99 degrees in walnut reek. these spectators found relief sitting in the shade and keeping the drinks on ice. >> that's what keeps them happy after the game if they lose. >> reporter: the swim center is another favorite spot to keep the body, and the novembers cool. >> they want to get in the
11:11 pm
water as soon as possible. >> sounds like they're gettingdelirious with the heat. >> definitely. >> i just use my barbeque instead of using the oven. >> keep the heat outside. >> absolutely. >> reporter: one tip, if you have a ceiling fan, set it to turn counterclockwise. that pulls cool air off the floor, helps to keep you cool, cheaper. and pull down your shades. that also keeps you cooler, and helps reduce the load on the state's power grid. live in walnut creek, ken wayne, ktvu, channel 2 news. people in oakland hoping to cool off in a public swimming pool today were out of luck. oakland city workers staged a one day strike because of contract issues. that meant the gates were locked, and off limits. city workers said they will be back on their jobs tomorrow, so
11:12 pm
that means the pools should be open. and we do remain locked in this very hot, hot pattern. that means the excessive heat warning is going to continue through midweek, for areas over the north bay, inland east bay, south bay, and the santa cruz mountains, just as soon as you get away from the water. oakland, hayward, not included in this warning. you can see the peninsula, as well as the coastline not included in the warning. the minute you go inland, from orinda. this is expected to last until wednesday. 65 in oakland. 57 in san francisco. with an onshore breeze we've cooled off around the bay area. inland, it is still quite warm. 82 in walnut creek. 81 in lafayette. if i make one last shift here,

11:16 pm
locked. striking workers are asking for support. b.a.r.t. workers and their supporters rally. striking employees tell me the work stoppage was a last resort. they also say they knew a strike could turn the public against them. >> i stand firmly with what we're asking for. we've worked hard, and we've worked through everything. >> reporter: workers say they haven't received a pay raise in four years. >> i would characterize it as greedy and out of touch. >> reporter: she's the vice chair of the california republican party. she says the strike causes many to show up late or not at all. >> there are many people out there who would be grateful for a job like that. >> reporter: but they've had to deal with violent individuals and other problems. >> they don't know what our

continuing coverage of the b.a.r.t. strike now, just about every commuter in the bay area is waiting for it to be over. >> reporter: the governor was asked to get involved, and to declare a cooling off period by the union, but you'll recall, that was days ago, and he has declined. he's still on the sidelines with that. the thinking is, that b.a.r.t. doesn't want that, because b.a.r.t. wants to deal with this now. it's a holiday.

in three months, we'll also be pushing labor day. we'll be pushing into the opening of the new bay bridge. if you have a b.a.r.t. shut down at a time you're going to overload the bay bridge, you're really not going to be able to debut that signature bridge the way you want to either. i think there's always feeling that if you have a delay, you're really kicking the can down the road, and you'll be here at the end of that cooling off period, maybe at the same sort of stalemate that we have right now. there are no new talks the governor office did issue a statement, urging them to continue to bargain. now that we have one day of strike under our belt, i think those messages from politicians, from government leaders, from transportation officials would become even more efficient and frequent. i'm told the bargaining leaders holed up in the marriott hotel, this is where many of them are
