School bus drivers strike outside of the State of the City on February 14.

UPDATE (8 p.m.): Mayor Bloomberg, city officials and union members have announced that the school bus strike is over.

According to several local politicians, including State Senator Marty Golden and City Councilmember Vincent Gentile, who posted the news on Facebook, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181 is expected to officially end the school bus strike at 7 p.m. Friday.

If drivers do decide to go back to work, school buses will be available to students as early as 7 a.m. Tuesday morning.

The welcome news comes just a day after Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s State of the City address at the Barclays Center, where he called the strike a “lost cause.”
