Good morning. Have you had your coffee yet? Either way, you’re reading that headline correctly: The transit agency and its unions agreed to a 30-day extension of the contract that expired last week and prompted this week’s shutdown. Trains will resume service at 3 p.m. today. Read this SFGate story for more details. Here’s SF Weekly’s story, and SF Appeal’s.
