    The weird ocean-themed tunnel that does not lead you to the northbound side of the tracks, smells of piss and bad dreams.

    On the Northbound platform there are two readers for your Clipper card but otherwise no ticket vending so buy your ticket on the Southbound side.

    No ticket machine on the northbound platform. Buy parking and train tickets before going through the tunnel.

    The underpass to get to the northbound side is not well marked. It's south of the ticket bldg, mid-parking-lot.

    Don't be fooled by the old tunnel North of the station -- it doesn't go to the North-bound tracks! The tunnel is South of the tracks.

    If you need a bathroom run over to Mollie stone's. The bathrooms on the train are brutal.
