BART is alerting riders that most of the charter buses it is providing to help fill the transit gap during the BART employees’ strike are full and cannot transport more passengers.

Trains stopped running Monday morning because of the strike, but BART has been providing dozens of buses to take commuters to and from San Francisco.

BART spokesman Jim Allison said buses leaving from the El Cerrito del Norte, Walnut Creek, Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont stations are full. He said the buses reached capacity before 7 a.m.

Allison said there is still limited capacity on buses departing from the West Oakland station. Those buses are scheduled to operate until 8 a.m.

If the strike continues on Wednesday, he said, BART will work to increase its bus capacity.

    I had no idea that the charter buses get really busy on Tuesdays. I think that it is a weird day for a busy schedule. I wonder if Tuesday is just a day that people want to run errands? http://www.barringtontransportation.com/Services/
