OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco Bay Area's main commuter rail line is up and running after a potential transit strike was averted for the third straight day.

Federal mediator George Cohen said Tuesday night that the Bay Area Rapid Transit agency and its unions have made some progress in the intense negotiations to avoid a second strike in more than three months.

KGO-TV reports that negotiations are expected to resume at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

The threat of a BART strike has been looming over commuters every weekday since last Thursday.

Meanwhile, workers at the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District, a major regional bus line, have also threatened to strike this week if their conditions for a new contract aren't met. AC Transit has asked the governor to intervene to prevent a potential strike.
