SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A San Francisco transit agency says stalled contract talks with its striking train workers will resume.
BART spokesman Rick Rice says BART officials were notified by state mediators that negotiations will start at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
The move comes as political pressure builds for union members and the Bay Area Rapid Transit agency to reach a settlement.
Commutes in the region were thrown into chaos when members of the two largest unions representing BART workers went on strike early Monday after talks with management broke down.
BART is the nation's fifth-largest rail system and carries passengers from the furthest reaches of San Francisco's densely populated eastern suburbs to San Francisco International Airport across the bay.
