By TERRY COLLINS , The Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. - San Francisco Bay Area commuters faced another day of uncertainty Monday as a major regional transit agency and two of its largest unions held talks under the ever-present threat of a strike. "I am so frustrated with the way they've been holding the riders hostage," said commuter Toba Villatore, 45, of San Francisco as she headed to work. "I'm tired of staying up until midnight wondering if there's going to be a strike or not." Representatives of Bay Area Rapid Transit and the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 and the Service Employees International Union Local 1021 resumed negotiations Monday afternoon only hours after tense negotiations ended around 3 a.m.
