    Escalators and stairs as you get off the train are weirdly designed. Do I go left or do I go right?

    Like all downtown Bart stations, this one reeks of weed, urine and sewage.

    Gateway to the Financial District and has a peak time of 8:30a to 9:30a and then again from 3:45p to 5:30p so expect to queue for any trains leaving the station in either direction xx

    Very busy during morning and evening rush hour due to the Financial District being located as the closest station, so beware of congestion during those peak times xx

    I used to stop at Embarcadero where, each morning, my nostrils were assaulted with the stench of stale piss. There's no piss smell here. Thanks, Montgomery!

    Some bart machines take credit card, some do not. Check on the machine - it'll have a sign taped onto it if it takes credit card.

    Heading across the Bay? While the train drives through the Transbay Tube, count how many emergency lights you see in 11 seconds. Multiply that number by 3 and you'll get your train's approximate mph!
