Buses, subways still rolling in the Bronx as threat of MTA strike looms

Bronx and city straphangers have a ride home Friday, despite a breakdown in contract talks between the Transport Workers Union TWU and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). After failing to reach an agreement with the MTA Friday, the union called a partial strike against two private bus lines that are in the process of being taken over by the MTA. If a deal cannot be reached by 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, the strike will be extended to subways. MTA Chairman Peter Kalikow said the MTA's latest offer is the best the public transit system can produce. He also said no more talks are scheduled. Related Article Transit Strike Information for BX
