"Metropolitan Transportation buses hit the streets and freeways this morning — and two of the agency's train lines resumed partial operation — as commuters welcomed transit service that's been idle since the strike began more than a month ago....The strike began Oct. 14 and essentially shut down the nation's third-largest transit system. MTA drivers, clerks and supervisors honored the mechanic's picket lines, bringing MTA bus, subway and light-rail service to a halt. The strike was the second-longest transit work stoppage in Los Angeles history."
