extra commuters a day as opposed to the 9,000 they carry every day. commuters are feeling a sense of dread and frustration. b.a.r.t. was shut down for five days during the walkout in july. that job action added thousands of people to the roads and thousands had to wake up extra early why to line up for buses and ferries in order to get around. we asked workers for reaction to the current situation in downtown san fransisco. here's what they said. >> i would be very unhappy and it would impact me tremendously if they were to strike now. >> if i don't have b.a.r.t., then i can't go to work. >> that would be a nightmare, definitely. >> so crazy. i don't know if i can get to work. >> i'll have to stay at home until they play nice with each other. >> they're holding us hostage and i don't like it. >> i think they should have figured out what they need to
do. >> it's outrageous because i don't think b.a.r.t. has been bargaining in good faith. >> the union is well paid for the work that they do. and hots of people would be -- lots of people would be happy to have their type of situation. >> it is frustrating. i don't believe i know all the issues, the negotiating has bent as transparent as it might be. both sides are saying things and there's no way to evaluate the truth in all of it. >> i'm hoping and praying it doesn't happen. >> stay with kron 4 as we continue to follow the negotiations between b.a.r.t. management and the unions, as the unions could still issue a 72-hour strike notice. you can download our app and check our website kron 4.com for the latest updates. the sheriff say the streets are safer after they seized chose to a million and a half dollars of drugs from a home in san jose. it was the culmination of a
