apple rumors, then the full- sized ipad is getting a makeover. a faster chip, thinner design, maybe even some rounded corners. >> from across the bay to around the world, the stories that matter on "kpix 5 news this morning." captions by: caption colorado email@example.com >> score! >> your realtime captioner is mrs. linda m. macdonald. good morning, everyone. it's tuesday, october 22. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. it is 5:00. and bart riders are feeling a little duped this morning. they were told limited service would be running this morning after a deal was made late last night but that is just not the case. kpix 5 reporter cate caugiran live at the lake merritt bart station in oakland this morning and cate, we hear it's all about staffing i guess, right? >> reporter: yeah, that's right. we did get a tweet from one of the unions that said that we just don't have enough people to staff the bart station so you're seeing even probably behind me commuters coming up to these doors going inside and coming out just as frustrated as they were yesterday because these trains are not up and running even though the strike is over. we're hearing somewhere in the ballpark it could be running up
at 6:00 this morning. but again, there's still some good news. we were here when the unions and bart officials came out of these doors last night to give the announcement that 400,000 riders have been waiting for that the strike is over. both sides wouldn't disclose the details of the agreement right now. it's still tentative. it still has to be approved by bart's board of directors and put up for a vote by the unions. and these will be the final steps to what felt like a never- ending saga. >> we apologize to our riders for the hardship you have experienced these past few days. we're able to stand up for workers' rights, safety and the riders' safety. >> i will simply say that this offer is more than we wanted to pay. but it is also a new path in terms of our partnership with our workers. >> reporter: bart trains will be running on a limited service when it starts running.
bart is planning on running those charter buses from nine bart stations and those started at 5:00 this morning and will go until 8:00 this morning. bart says that full service will be restored in time for the evening commute. but again, yes, the strike is over, but no, bart trains are not running as of this point. we are going to let you know now, we have seen several riders come up to these doors and not be able to get on a train because the unions say and bart says there isn't enough staffing for running the trains this morning. reporting live in oakland, back to you in the studio. >> cate, any idea how much the strike has cost? >> reporter: well, frank, that's actually a really good question. we don't have the exact numbers on that yet, but we are hearing that sfmta is reporting they added 16 buses and two light rains to accommodate for the strike and that cost them or set them back about $100,000 a day and they say that's not sustainable so this is a bit of good news for those other transit agencies that sort of had to pick up the slack when bart did go on strike. >> well, hopefully they can get
the trains rolling soon this morning. cate caugiran live at lake merritt, thank you. plans to ban future bart strikes are moving forward. orinda city councilman steve glazier started a petition last month to ban public transit strikes in the state. he has been collecting signatures at bart stations, oregon and new york already have laws banning public employees from striking. and city law stops san francisco muni workers from walking off the job. glazier will hold a news conference today about his campaign. with bart trains not ready to roll yet, ferries are still a good option. sf bay ferry will continue its strike schedule through the end of the day, 12 boats instead of the usual 8 running during the strike. >> it could be another long day on the roads with traffic. let's check in with liza battalones. reporter: until the moment folks can take bart, we can expect delays at the bay bridge toll plaza. right now, we have backups and an accident in the clearing
stages. you can see the blinging lights there. two-car accident blocking one lane. we have delays at the toll plaza extending to about the end of the east parking lot. but as long as bart is still -- until bart service is established, expect delays at the bay bridge toll plaza. ing golden gate bridge commute, it's foggy out there. lawrence has been talking about the following. take it easy if you plan to make the golden gate commute. i drove along 280 through the peninsula in san mateo. that fog is thick there. that's a look at the drive into work. here's lawrence. >> all right. yeah, the fog is going to be the main weather concern today, liza, very thick. a dense fog advisory is issued in the north bay now. visibilities down to a quarter mile maybe even less in spots so be careful not only there, but we have patchy, dense fog outside elsewhere. thick fog to start with today. watch out for that early on but that should begin to lift through the middle of the morning. then by the afternoon looking at a nice day but the clouds continuing out over the bay, as well. looks like the temperatures

[ crying ] >> and he did. >> reporter: landsberry's sister told reporters she is not surprised her brother died trying to protect students. the shooting at sparks middle school started around 7:15. law enforcement officials say they arrived within three minutes. >> we're inside the cafeteria where the students have been huddled. so they are safe here. we're looking for the shooter now. >> reporter: but by the time they got there the shooter had already wounded two students, killed landsberry, and turned the gun on himself. >> he pointed to us and then
said, you ruined my life. and i'm going to ruin yours. >> reporter: police say it's too early to determine whether the 13-year-old student targeted specific people. jericka duncan, cbs news. >> officials say the 13-year- old used a gun that was owned by his parents. new details about saturday's accident that killed two workers on the bart tracks in the east bay. a bart employee who was being trained because of the strike was operating the train that hit the two men. the ntsb says the trainee was at the controls but the train was in automatic mode. >> we'll look at training procedures. we'll look at past training. we'll look at 72-hour history of everybody involved. we won't leave any stone unturned. >> investigators also say there was a warning that workers were on the tracks. today they plan to reenact the collision. they hope to learn whether the workers who were killed had a chance to see the train approaching. >> we could find out tomorrow if the governor will order a 60- day cooling-off period to delay an ac transit strike. union workers have rejected the

they are not really going to go the same distance is like microsoft with a battery, keyboard, track pad, things that make it more of a laptop. >> reporter: on apple's heels, wednesday microsoft is set to unveil its surface 2 touted as doing everything the ipad cannot, it features a dedicated stand with optional attaching keyboard and track pad. it has a usb 3.0 slot and mini hdmi plus a mini sd card slot. >> pull it out during break or what not and actually work on my paper. at the same time, too, i work, so there's excel spreadsheet there that i can use so an ipad, you kind of don't have those options. >> reporter: so in the tablet wars, apple is in the lead but the others are quickly gaining speed. so samsung's galaxy tablet and amazon's kindle are some of the others that just have exploded on the scene just in the last year and a half giving apple a run for its money.

from about the 880 overcrossing. the middle fastrak lanes are still doing okay. and i-80 as it rolls through the berkeley area, still looking okay westbound traffic fine approaching ashby in berkeley. now, the altamont pass we are seeing early delays now for westbound 580. it's slow from the 205 interchange through livermore. but through pleasanton speeds pick up with no major delays as of yet for westbound 580 heading down the dublin grade. the san mateo bridge, still a good option. westbound traffic is moving well leaving hayward bound for foster city. and remember, as a courtesy, san francisco bay ferry will continue their strike service. they will add extra runs to their ferry service today. no delays reported for caltrain or the altamont commuter express. that's a look at "kcbs traffic." now to lawrence. >> all right. we have a lot of fog around the bay area, liza, if you are headed out the door. get ready for thick fog even a dense fog advisory in the north bay valleys. cool temperatures in the 40s out there. by the afternoon, though, again going to stay cool out toward
the coastline. but as you get inside the bay you'll see some hazy sunshine with 60s and a few 70s and then lots of 80s and mild conditions in many of the valleys this afternoon. so here's how it breaks down. we have a ridge remaining in place. a couple of areas of low pressure, though, undercutting that ridge. one of those will move in from southern california over the weekend bringing clouds and cooling us down. today afternoon sunshine for most of us. and really a pretty nice day except out at the coastline, got that thick fog there, probably going to cause delays at sfo this morning. so be prepared for that. around the country showers into chicago about 46 degrees. sunny in denver at 68. partly cloudy in houston at 75. and 66 and partly cloudy in new york. i think around the bay today we'll find plenty of sunshine this afternoon away from the coastline and about 76 degrees very comfortable in san jose. 73 in milpitas and 71 degrees in union city. a lot of numbers up in the 70s and 80s as you head to the interior valleys this afternoon. and then as you get inside the bay a little cooler into san
francisco, 63 degrees there. about 57 degrees in daly city and the north bay you will see some sunshine 74 degrees in santa rosa. but a cool 58 degrees at stinson beach. next couple of days, we'll likely see more of that patchy dense fog in the morning hours giving way to some sunshine in the afternoon. maybe a couple of passing high clouds. otherwise, we're looking good. then as we get in toward the weekend one of those lows passing to the south of southern california bringing a few more clouds in our direction and maybe cooler temperatures into saturday and sunday. nice weather. >> very acceptable, lawrence. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. >> you did good, lawrence. >> thank you so much, guys. >> thanks, lawrence. 5:18 now. two of ariel castro's victims will write a book about their terrifying ordeal. amanda berry and gina dejesus two of the three women held captive for a decade in the cleveland house will be the authors. they plan to work with a team of award winning journalists from the "washington post" to tell their story finally. the women said they were inspired by the book written by jays see dugard. two boy scout leaders are
