    This station has nice art. More pleasant than concrete walls. Also, be sure to walk further up the platform. If the train isn't long enough, you'll end up running to catch the last, overcrowded car.

    Hell before/after Caps games. Actually, almost always hell. If you're in the area and trying to take Orange/Silver/Blue to VA, better to walk a couple blocks to Metro Center and not have to transfer.

    On the platform? The less space you leave for people to exit (let's take the width of the doors), the longer it takes for folks to get off, the longer it'll take to get on. Make room, please. Thanks.

    If you're transferring to go to Metro Center and you're in good health, just walk there. It takes 5 minutes and allows the rest of us going further on the red line to get on a train during rush hour.

    Some of you may not be aware but this metro station is highly secured for many reasons and when a patrol is en route to get the bad guys just expect pushing and shoving. stay clear or go elsewhere.

    The "stand on the right" tips would be better communicated if WMATA installed signs in the middle of the escalators. The London Tube does it and it works well.

    Yellow/Green: On SB trains, use the front for Glenmont / Silver Spring Red trains and the rear for Grosvenor / Shady Grove Red trains. Reverse for trains from VA. Doors open on the left.
