Zone 1 - Milepost 0.2 Vendors: Caffe DíAmore, Subway sandwich, Bow-K Flowers, Warm Planet Bikes
AT&T Park is really close by! Yas SF Giants!! ⚾️⚾️
Citybike share has a huge rack right outside, grab a bike to anywhere in soma or fidi instead of fighting the bike crowd
Ticket dispenser only takes cash and credit cards - no debit cards - but there's an ATM.
Buy your ticket in the station. No mobile ticketing and no buying tickets on the train.
Just hold out your elbows and push through. Every man for themselves. Nothing's taken personally during rush hour and no one wants to stand during a commute.
If you're not familiar with Caltrain, don't worry. It's simple. It will tell you what zone you're in and zone of your destination. Simply pay for what zone you're going to.
Always on time when I traveled
Pretty nice station with a subway and snack bar.
Where can I go dancing around here?
Don't be an ass. If you are alone, don't take the two seats facing each other and put your feet up on the other seat
Stop by the avenue for lunch or dinner spots
Spatial awareness, people!! Please watch where you tote your oversized backpack, lest you slam it into a sitting passenger's face!
With clipper cards is better
Get here with some time to spare. Caltrain people always check Clipper Cards when there's only a minute before train departure.
Pretty sure this station was designed and is run by a bunch of toddlers. It's the most disorganized big city train/subway station I've experienced.
If you get the Caltrain monthly pass on a Clipper Card you only have to tag on / off once a month.
I think the machine that reloads Clipper Cards runs on a landline with a dial-up connection. If you’re planning on reloading your Card before a trip, leave yourself plenty of time.
The guy who runs the concession stand at this station exudes so much positivity that everyone goes away smiling. Quite a cool example of how we all can be and the effect it would have on the world.
No feet on the seats please;( you walk in dirty places and no matter how clean you think they are, they are still dirty.
Don't forget to Tag off. It could cost you a lot more to travel if you have the Monthly Pass or the 8-Ride...One of these days, Clipper will come up with a better way.
Don't have a cell phone conversation on the train if you can avoid it.
If you are using your ClipperCard to start here, make sure you tag off, for heaven sakes, because it is a very expensive charge from this location $12.75....
The upper level seats have outlets somewhere in the middle seats (:
Give yourself at least ten minutes to add value to your clipper card. Those machines take forever.
If you purchase your monthly pass from the clipper card machine at this station, you don't have to tag on and off on the first day of the month.
In the mornings sit on the west side of the train and when coming back in the evenings sit on the east side. Otherwise you risk being sweaty and blind when you arrive.
Sometimes the SF Opera folks come and sing and it's absolutely amazing.
Don't forget to tag on/off. Trust me.
When sitting in the double facing seats. The person there first gets first right to sit the way they want.
If you don't have a bike please don't sit in the bike car. There's not enough room a lot of time for this of us that have bikes, and we'd like to keep an eye on them.
Don't sit in the bike car if you don't have a bike with you! Everyone else thinks you're a jerk.
Clipper reload machine on the right is broken. USE the reload machine on the LEFT!
Be on time. Watching the train pull out as you arrive is heartwrenching
Free wifi and you can find power outlets on the top cars about 5-6 rows in.
The coveted power supply seat in the old train! upper level between 6-7 seat!
#protip Power outlets in middle of upper level.
Ah. Nothing in life beats the invigorating smell of tuna and onion in the morning. :(
Avoid the 5:37 baby bullet south. Standing room only.
Don't sit on the right side of the train going southbound. It gets pretty hot sitting in the sun for an hour.
Try and get here atleast 10 mins early during game day....or u will definitely miss the train..esp ppl who have to take the baby bullet..!!it gets crazy crowded. .
Hold your breath while you walk by Subway.
Toilet cars stink especial in the older trains. They are nearly unbearable when hot!
Don't forget to tag on and off! Otherwise you'll be charged for the entire ride!
Safeway's always a good place to wander to when you've missed your train and have to wait an hour for the next local.
Restrooms are pretty good considering!
Put a tag on your bike and try and put it in the crate that is going where you are going or begins those getting off before you.
A usual train station - a great way to travel between San Francisco, San Mateo and San Jose!
I love your accents, you lovely American people. You make even mundane things, like train service announcements, awesome.
