    Escalators being down breaks my heart. Never enough places to sit even though there is more room for benches.

    Usually crowded with pushy tourists, so usually let them push past as if you don't catch the train another is along in like ten minutes or that!

    Elevator out by the Visitor's center (!)) report for some time. FYI for those others w luggage.

    This is the station to get most easily to/from the Union Square located hotels from/to SFO or connecting Amtrak services to/from Richmond BART Station

    Jeffrey-Ryan B. · October 29, 2013
  • Jeffrey-Ryan B.

    Often platform is packed to get on a train so try walking to embarcadero station to get on before the people in the financial stop all get on and crowd the trains during peak hours xx

    avoiding the poop from homeless people as you walk up the broken escalators is a fun game you can play by yourself in the mornings!

    Chris 🍻 Makarsky · July 18, 2013
  • Bray L.

    It would be nice if people would wait for you to exit the train before trying to get on...

    Save $1.75! Don't take the train if your destination is Embarcadero, Montgomery St. or Civic Center/UN Plaza. Those stations are a short walk away.

    To pay for parking with a Clipper card you need to order online a hanging tag for your car. You then link the car tag to your Clipper card.

    this place is a shithole. when you're not being raped by BART's horrendous pricing on tickets - you're being socially harnessed by some homeless dude. take all that and combo it with urine smell.

    Make sure you arrive right as your train pulls out so you enjoy this station for as long as possible!

    THIS is where you must go FIRST of you've never been to San Francisco. All the crazies, riff raff, street "artists", and anyone else gathers. It sets the tone for a fun visit!

  • Sally S.

    Watch out for the woman trying to scam for a bart ticket in return for giving you "directions" on the easiest mode of transportation available. Just say no.

    Richmond should be the lowest map but it's better than map

  • Lindsay P.

    Watch out for guys who bug you when you're buying your tickets- even if it seems like they're trying to help, they're really just trying to get your PIN or scam you out of money.

    At least 50% of th time I'm lured into the mall when I just wanna escape into the street. Damn you, Mrs. Field's Cookies!!

  • Josef C.

    Once you step in the train, either sit or stand. Don't think about what your going to do and hold up people going in or walking on the isle. So annoying. Thanks!

    Josef Casimiro · May 15, 2012

    There's only 1 BART entrance now because of upgrades. It's... Very inconvenient.

    Pay attention to the car length markers. A 5 car train can slip right by.....

    They're playing Big Pimpin'. That's how you know it's good.

    Luis Balceda · January 16, 2012
  • gDuranAguirre

    Be mindful of the people on the escalators. Stay to the right if you aren't moving, there's probably an angry mob behind you, cursing and screaming for you to get outta the way.

    Here comes the train again...proving that my life is a tragedy, slogging me back to my destination...
