    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A major San Francisco Bay Area rapid transit system will continue to run commuter train service at least through the weekend after unions and management agreed late Thursday to extend labor talks past a midnight deadline, officials said.

    Bay Area Rapid Transit and two of its largest unions, the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 and the Service Employees International Union Local 1021, agreed to resume talks starting Friday as the parties were facing the end of a 60-day, state-mandated cooling-off period that prohibited a strike.
