    Monday through Thursday the parking usually fills up by 8 AM.. Get a one day parking permit online before going to the station if you are parking between 8 and 10 AM.

    The first general parking lot is full by 7:10am on weekdays. It's faster to park in the 2nd lot than drive around the 1st looking for a spot if you're there after that.

    Getting off at Montgomery St in SF? East side of the platform, enter train directly under the scheduling monitor. Let's you off right at the escalator at Montgomery. Schwing!

    Lower lot doesn't open to general parking until 10am, but the parking machine will still accept your dollar and not give an error (even though it has a timestamp and should "know" you'll get a ticket.

    Lot 3 is always amazingly empty at 10am. Thang god for lazy people!

    Unnecessarily complicated ticket machines. Don't overspend by mistake - you can only get a refund by mail.

    Cheap white wine in a coffee cup makes the bart ride so much more comfortable.

    Have fun pretending to race the cars on 24. Mock them when they are stuck in traffic.
