  • Vivian J.

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

  • Michael M.

    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.

    Michael M. · April 14, 2013
  • Sarah C.

    If you see sharks and dolphins, you're in the wrong tunnel!

    Sarah Cornwell · December 15, 2012
  • Jason G.

    Trains, planes and automobiles - no, wait - just trains.

    Jason Grosse · December 6, 2012
  • Nataraj D.

    Look out towards the east side of the train and you will see a funny statue!

  • Lubo S.

    Boring station , pick Starbucks on way here to have at least warm boring waiting time

    Lubo Star · October 11, 2012
  • Anthony R.

    Just get on the train already.

    If ur looking for Caltrain shuttle stop not the stanford - adjacent to southbound parking lot.

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

    Waste of Time · December 2, 2011
  • Leanne W.

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

    Leanne Waldal · October 6, 2011
  • John B.

    Nice spot to catch the train

    John Berrang · October 4, 2011
  • Diego S.

    Look for the running car.

    Diego Sanchez · October 1, 2011
  • Lakeshia H.

    Try walking. You'll get there faster. Seriously

    Lakeshia Hardy · August 16, 2011
  • Joshua C.

    Grab a snack/drink at the market at the end of Cal Ave right near the station!

    Joshua Covey · July 19, 2011
  • Jim R.

    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.

    Jim R · July 12, 2011
  • Rikke J.

    No ticket dispenser on the northbound side... duh!

    Rikke Johansen · May 15, 2011
  • Bhaumin S.

    They've got the subway on the wrong end of the platform, have to walk so much.

    Bhaumin Shah · September 24, 2010
  • Vandita W.

    I like to sit on the benches and have lunch.

    Vandita Wilson · August 7, 2010
  • Vandita W.

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

    Christina Wodtke · December 21, 2009
