OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco Bay Area's main commuter train agency and its unions plan to return to the bargaining table Monday, as a crippling transit strike continues.

Bay Area Rapid Transit spokesman Rick Rice said BART and the unions will resume negotiations sometime in the afternoon and BART hopes to reach an agreement by 6 p.m. so trains can begin running Tuesday.

Talks had broken down Thursday, and the unions went on strike the following day.

BART is the nation's fifth-largest commuter rail system and has an average weekday ridership of 400,000.

The strike crippled the rush hour commute on Friday and Monday, as people trying to get into San Francisco jammed roadways and endured long lines for ferries and buses.
