    It's good to get inside the paid area as quickly as possible for some measure of additional safety.

    San Francisco Main Library is close by. Borrow a book to read while waiting for the train.

    Smells like pee, bunch of crackheads near the entrances and at the station. One of the worst stations in SF. True SF spirit.

    One of the worst stations. All the entrances are crowded with homeless people, stinks like pee.

    Really scuzzy stairs up to the plaza. Should probably get a tetanus shot afterwards

    Don't take the elevator unless you really have to. It's a slow 1 minute decent and the car reeks of pee

    Civic Center/ Grove exit is almost always fucking broken. Take Market / 8th St instead.

    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.

    Who decided it was a good idea to have a train that only runs to 24th street?

    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.

    Prevent theft by keeping your cell phone and other devices concealed. Snatch and Run is a favorite M.O. of thieves.

    The MUNI trains here are always so packed! Take BART: it's faster and in S.F., goes to most of the same stops.
