Bronx commuters in Parkchester have mixed feeling about transit strike

The three-day transit strike is over and to the relief of many, subways and buses are rolling in the Bronx and city. Dozens of commuters packed the Parkchester subway station to catch the number six train Friday. Although the lack of mass transit left straphangers stranded for days, some commuters said they thought the Transport Workers Union (TWU) should have held out. Buses and subways began rolling after the TWU ordered its 34,000 members back to work Thursday, even though they didn't have a contract deal with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). Commuters who have monthly MetroCards will be able to use them for three extra days to make up for the days the city's buses and subways weren't running.
