Oakland North Now 8.14.09

on August 14, 2009

The BART strike is still scheduled to begin on Sunday at midnight. Now is a good time to get familiar with the Trans Bay bus lines and plan ahead if the strike happens.

The Environment friendly blog The Thin Green Line has some planet friendly suggestions for alternate commuting options.

Mayor Dellums has selected a new police chief for the Oakland Police Department.  Police chief Anthony Batts from Long Beach, California will take the reigns in September.  In the meantime,  Batt’s contract is still under negotiation.
