BART spokesman Jim Allison says that the shuttle bus system put in place to help commuters cope with the BART strike is unable to keep up with the demand and has stopped picking up passengers at most locations.
Shuttle buses at El Cerrito del Norte, Walnut Creek, Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont stations will no longer be able to carry passengers this morning due to the overwhelming demand.
Service from these stations was scheduled to continue no later than 8 a.m. Those buses reached capacity shortly before 7 a.m.
BART added buses at West Oakland Station this morning and there is limited capacity at that station until 8 a.m. BART will work to increase overall bus capacity in the event the strike continues tomorrow.
