With a possible strike looming, BART is approving a new one-point-five billion dollar budget. The balanced budget includes an order for 410 new rail cars, the deep cleaning of stations, a pilot project to reduce train noise and other system improvements. The budget included a one-percent raise for workers only if certain criteria were met, including a sales tax increase. The current contract is set to expire at the end of the month.
