    Yes, depending how the wind is blowing will determine the intensity of that weird smell. You can't quite figure it out yet? It's urine!

    If you're going to Coliseum/OAKland Airport, take a Dublin/Pleasanton or Fremont train to go directly there. Transferring is too easy to get wrong. Hint: CDF.

    If escalators are not working, remember there are elevators! I feel bad seeing elderly people go up those flights of stairs, and it's too late to let then know.

    Don't stand in front of the train doors. Stand to the side so that passengers exiting don't have to push you out of the way.
