additional stations. bart also wants to run a limited number of trains through the transbay tube using non-union managers as operators. the unions are strongly opposed to that idea and the bart board of directors would have to approve the use of any temporary train operators. the san francisco bay ferry would also run additional routes, just as they did in july, but they would be getting one additional ferry from the golden gate ferry system. caltrans is considering extending hov hours along interstates 80, 880 and 680. they may also add a temporary hov lane along highway 24. they may also allow lift truck restrictions along 580, in order to relieve congestion on 880. and finally, ac transit, which provides bus service in the east bay and across the bay bridge, is currently not planning any service changes.. although final plans are expected to be announced later this month. in the newsroom, charles clifford kron 4 news. >>james: a south bay teacher will be

including the department of defense, are still trying to figure exactly out how this all happened. alexis is a former navy reservist and i-t contractor. the fray on capitol hill is not distracting the white house from pushing forward with it's awareness campaign on president obama's health care law. even if there's a partial government shutdown next week, major parts of the law will still be in place and rolling along. brianna keilar reports. >> everybody sign up and go to health care doggo. >> yesterday bill clinton help the president often awareness campaign in new
