    Free Parking after 3 PM in the BART lot, weekdays and All Day Weekends. BART is now allowing CalTrain Parking during Weekday Commute hours, apparently.

    If using a Clipper card, don't forget to tag-off on the Caltrain platform before tagging on again to go through the gates to the BART platform, otherwise you'll pay the highest amount chargeable.

    If you're travelling from the South Bay to downtown San Francisco, change @ Milbrae and hop across to BART which'll take you to Powell (Union Square) rather than having to take a bus @ King/Townsend.

    Give yourself at least 10 mins to find parking, walk to the train and pay for parking. $3 cash only

    Get a day pass it's cheaper than buying a tix each way.

    Exit platform 3 from BART to platform 4 for Caltrain Northbound is super easy.

    Walk south on the street adjacent to the tracks until Murchison to avoid the "aggressive" Millbrae Ave. intersection.

    For maximum safety sit with your back to the forward motion on a tabled booth next to an emergent exit window.

    Be careful with your transfer timings. There is no co-ordination between caltrain and BART

    Parking for CalTrain on the West Side in the CalTrain lot is paid thru CalTrain ticketing machines, there are two on the concourse level and one on each ticketing platform. CalTrain parking is 24/7

    Arrive early to pay for parking if riding Caltrain. There is only one machine you can use to pay for parking. Remember your stall number and bring cash.

    Oh Sucky "transit center". Even though Bart is delayed, the Caltrain (coming only once an hour) doesn't bother to wait, even if it means waiting 3 more minutes to allow ppl to catch their connection.

    If your NB train is coming & you are upstairs, tag-on up there to get on train car at the bottom of stairs ASAP. The boxes downstairs are too far and they won't wait unless you are ready to hop on.

    When transferring to a caltrain, blast by the noobies using the ticket stations on the top floor and the use the ones at ground level to avoid a line.

    This is the last Caltrain one can take and still get to their seats before the first pitch of a 7:15 PM Giants game at AT&T Park.

    Park in the BART parking garage. It's only $1 vs $4 for CalTrain parking.

    A five-minute window for a BART->Caltrain connection is not enough given BART's reliability. Maybe 10 minutes.

    自動券売機にて日本発行クレジットカードで切符を買おうとしてもカードの承認が下りません。しかし、券売機にロゴが貼られていないSuica系JCBカードだと通る(Suica JCB, ビックカメラSuica JCBで確認)ことも有ります。
