    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!

    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

    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.

    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.
