Officials at the Central Ohio Transit Authority say they’ve reached a tentative agreement with the union representing about 600 drivers and mechanics, but there will still be a strike…at least a short one.

Union officials said on Friday that they would strike even if they reached an agreement. The strike means there will be no fixed-route service today, but Will Call and non-ADA trips will not be affected.

Union members are expected to vote on the deal at a meeting tonight.
