The station is one of the more heavily-utilized on the system serving as a busy transfer point. Along with residential areas, the neighborhood surrounding Belmont contains many eclectic shops, bars, and restaurants and active nightlife.
Avoid playing Frogger on Belmont Avenue if you're catching the #77 bus. If you're going east, get off at the southernmost exit. If you're going west, get off at the northernmost exit.
Why are there no benches at this station?? Wtf! I don't wanna stand!
If u ever need to get a fifth of vodka, grilled cheese, movie poster, and yeast infection in your eye...this is the place.
At least they have train tracker signs. Why don't other Red Line stations have this?
Best stop to get missed connectioned at (or your foot licked)
The view of 1000 liqour just makes me want to drink.
I want everyone to imagine before you post your trivial complaints that you are complaining to a small, starving Ethiopia child. First world problems much?
The crazies are on the red line tonight!
If going south on redline and you missed purple or brown train get off and look south if u see either train you'll catch it @ fullerton by staying on redline train TRUST ME
New entrance across the street. Yes you can buy a cta pass here.
The elevator smells like urine.
North stairway is open and cross-connects so you can make the SB red to NB purple transfer easily from both ends.
transferring to the Westbound 77 Bus? Avoid the line and walk half a block East to catch it at Belmont & Clark.
Tranny hooker central!
The train conveniently never runs when you need...
This is where your night begins, continues or ends. Party central especially on holidays and weekends!
Why is the Brown Line so much cleaner than the Red Line? Yuck!
This not only Apply while on the bus but here... If your stop is no this one... WHY ARE YOU PRETENDUNG YOU ARE THE DOOR GUARD... MOOOOOVE. COMMON SENSE IS APPRECIATED.
The stairs after a burrito bowl at chipotle feel like death.
There are escalators on the left & right hand side of the terminal upon entering. The left hand side is going to Howard, the right one to 95th/Dan Ryan.
Be prepared to wait forever for the brown line train because you missed it thanks to the red line dragging...Thanks again red line.
Go to Clark's, you will not regret this decision! I promise... Peace be with you.
Brought to you by Tide.
26 minutes to State and Lake (loop) via Red Line
Pace around to make the time pass faster.
Save the drama for your mama!
Look for the albino pigeon.
You're really close to ABC Bartending School. Don't go there. That place sucks. They teach misinformation.
Switch here to the brown line rather than waiting until Fullerton if going to the loop in the morning rush. The train will be MUCH more crowded at Fullerton.
Catch a train for the full experience of this station.
Don't drink here. You'll probably get a ticket. I did.
Stare at the train schedule... it will annoy you even more!
Don't stand directly in front of the train doors before entering train & same if you are on the train and not getting off.
Beware of commuters! They hate anyone not like them!
If you have to transfer to the Brownline, do it here instead of Fullerton. Less crowded.
Watch out for muggers!
Walk around the corner to 3110 N. Sheffield to see hilarious improv shows courtesy of pH Productions @ Studio BE. Fridays and Saturdays at 10pm and 12am. BYOB. $10/$5.
#77 or Brown Line to Southport or Paulina? Look 4 trains & Westbound bus from East platform! Check traffic & figure which will be fastest. Plenty of time if you see the bus to run down and catch it!
Thirsty? A large bottle of water is only $1 @ the store in the entrance of the station
When trying to buy marijuana, please keep your phone conversations down as to not implicate everyone else in your crime.
Even for the CTA, the staff here are rude & incompetent.
Keep hand sanitizer handy here!
Common sense: You never really know when YOUR train will be late... Triple check your times, but still leave yourself a 15 minute window
Eat at Clarke's diner under the train ... awesome sweet potato fries!
If taking the Belmont 77 bus west toward Ashland .... walk to the stairs on the north side of platform; save yourself a game of frogger
Wait here for a train.
After Cubs games it is a lot easier to get on at Belmont than at Addison and if you're headed downtown skip the Red Line all together and go Brown!
There's a reason why that cart is empty during rush hours.
9:22 pm on a Friday, two southbound reds, two northbound reds, NO EFFING BROWN LINE TRAINS. fyi
