People tend to check in during these times:
BART...and you're there! Whether you're heading to work, meeting friends, catching a flight or catching a game, BART gets you around the San Francisco Bay Area.
A popular station for buskers and performers like the Victorian mime lady: http://sfbart.posterous.com/victorian-mime-lady-who-are-you
Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using public transportation. Especially during flu season. There’s a way to stay well.
if you're not going to walk up the escalator, stay on the right so you don't get trampled or hold anyone up.
wow, this is one of the few Bart stations that has good cellular reception!
Can be used to go from one side of the street to the other (via underground) when there's a parade or if it's raining
Oh, the smell of coffee and urine in the morning! The hub BART station for downtown San Francisco, yet be careful of homeless beggers and a variety of performers. No bathrooms.
The strip at the top of the wall is orange so you can quickly know you're at Powell & not Montgomery which is purple.
Green Day's music video for "When I Come Around" was filmed here! Don't run your fingers along the walls like they did, its nasty.
stay towards the outer entrances. tourists abound and most are lost.
Have you spotted one of our PocketBacs? Public transportation is a great place to pull out a PocketBac!
I love how I can get reception in BART, finally.
I recently spotted the homeless woman who begs at the bottom of the outside escalator exiting her home in SoMa eating food. WTF
If you aren't walking on the escalator, keep right
Don't sit anywhere. Don't touch anything. Matter of fact, you should wear a hazmat suit.
Careful about snacking on the platform, BART cops do enforce the no food and drink policy strictly!
Take it down. Down towwwwwwwn!
It would be nice if people would wait for you to exit the train before trying to get on...
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!
Good cell reception here=you can enjoy my sweet tunes!
Watch out for the "stress test" guys. They are Scientologists hungry for your money!
Make sure you arrive right as your train pulls out so you enjoy this station for as long as possible!
Mario on accordion...it doesn't get much better than that!
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!
When waiting in line for a train and a train you don't want to get on comes into the station please step away and let others get past you. Blocking the entrance to the train doors is just rude.
Don't forget to get your clipper card for free online! It makes everything so much easier.
Avoid the cranky panhandler, but check out the phat ladies who each take up a whole seat talking about their self induced diabetes...
just right to the nordstorm!
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.
Hands down. The worst fucking Bart station.
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.
If you are heading to the East Bay, walk towards the west (5th Street) end of the platform to board a train. There are often seats towards the rear of the train after commute hours.
There's free wi fi that seems to go till the end of the tunnel. Hope it stays free for a while.
Welcome or Goodbye from SF - BART got me to love public transportation
Be leary with the people around you.
Civic Center & Powell : the 2 Main Stations for Union Square
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
There's some shady people here... Watch ur back!
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!
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.
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!!
Don't take the elevator here unless you have to, smells like strong urine.
Pay attention to the car length markers. A 5 car train can slip right by.....
Don't get on. Just walk instead
Avoid the Elevator - its a urinal for homeless folk
You cannot add a monthly Adult Fast Pass onto your Clipper card. You have to go to a Muni Clipper machine.
The target of many a protest and station shutdown.
The downtown CCSF campus is one block away at the corner of Mission and 4th. Get yourself to class.
