    Transfer at this station from Fremont to San Francisco/Daly City to avoid the freeze outside! Do not transfer at Bay Fair station!

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

    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!
