    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.

    At least they have train tracker signs. Why don't other Red Line stations have this?

    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?

    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.

    Be prepared to wait forever for the brown line train because you missed it thanks to the red line dragging...Thanks again red line.

    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.

    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

    You're really close to ABC Bartending School. Don't go there. That place sucks. They teach misinformation.

    If you have to transfer to the Brownline, do it here instead of Fullerton. Less crowded.

    Watch out for muggers!

    Regan Fackrell · September 20, 2011
  • Albert E.

    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.

    Common sense: You never really know when YOUR train will be late... Triple check your times, but still leave yourself a 15 minute window

    Melissa Tennyson · April 29, 2012
  • Joe O.

    Don't stand directly in front of the train doors before entering train & same if you are on the train and not getting off.

    Wait here for a train.

    Bill Banks · October 25, 2011
  • Zach S.

    If the train is full if you wait for the next train (4 minutes) it won't be as crowded

    Zach Schneider · October 10, 2011
  • Paul T.

    #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!

    Paul Tuminaro · March 4, 2011
  • Scott B.

    If you want to make it to Skokie on-time, you won't. The train is running late.
