    Between 630-700 ish on Weekdays there is a guy in a leather coat who stands on the corner with 3 blue bags and just waits. He's been there every morning for at least 3 years, amazing!

    Dublin/pleasanton to Berkeley or vice versa: better transfer point than bay fair cuz this station is indoors and has outlets

    Careful about picking up at the bus stops. The BART police over there love giving out tickets. $245 a pop.
