    If switching to the Red Line (or catching the Blue Line) late at night/early in the morning, try to get on the first car for safety. If anything goes wrong, the conductor is right there.

    If the old guy with the mic and boombox is here, give him a buck and ask him to sing something by Sam Cooke.

    Tunnel from red to blue line always smells like feces. Plug your nose or deal with the smell.
