    A tentative agreement has been reached to end Philadelphia’s weeklong mass-transit strike—an action that many government officials feared could have impeded voters in Pennsylvania’s biggest city from getting to the polls on Election Day. The city’s buses, subways, and trolleys will gradually come back online Monday, with full service expected to be restored Tuesday. Employees of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority, or SEPTA, have been on strike since Oct. 31, and their negotiators agreed to a new five-year contract in Monday’s predawn hours. “We sincerely regret this disruption,” SEPTA Board Chairman Pasquale Deon said. “This has been a long few days here.”
