    When coming back to this station in the evenings during rush hour, try to plan it so you can get off the train right next to the stairs so you can run out and avoid the crowd.

    If you're coming back from downtown late at night and you think you'll make your bus, you won't, because this line always has issues

    ICC bus stop (201 to BWI) is opposite of the regular bus stops closer to the garage (east side of station coming from 370).

    Weekends are brutal. So ensure you put in a lot of buffer time if you're running the Red Line. You'll need it.

    Sit down and grab a comfy seat in the right direction. Its probably the only time you'll be able to grab one the whole red line!

    For the love of God, what ever you do- stand to the right on the escalator if you're not gonna jog up/down like a track star. :-)

    Don't use a paper ticket, farea cost more with it. Also don't forget to have at least $5 for parking left on card to get out. (Don't be the ass that backs up at the exit)

    Parking is free on weekends and federal holidays. Get here early during the week because the spots fill up very quickly.

    I know it's been shared already, but a gentle reminder wouldn't hurt, right? Folks, PLEASE stand to the RIGHT if you're not going to walk up/down the escalators!

    The middle cars are always the most crowded. Go toward the ends if you want to sit if Shady Grove is your last stop.

    Public trolling idea: stand to the left and see if you can make it to the top without getting yelled at. :)

    Even if you're not listening to music, in-ear headphones do well to block out those early-morning, across-the-train shouting, Metro conversationalist...

    Single tracking trains leave every twenty minutes so prepare to sit in the station for a long time.

    The "leaving in X minutes" sign in the ticket and gate area is meaningless. I've seen it say 3 minutes as the train is departing the station.

    Dont pile your junk in the seat next to you. Be respectful of others who may want to sit down.

    Great way to avoid parking nightmares in DC! Too bad they don't have service up to Frederick!

    Be polite and move your crap off the seat next to you so other people can sit down. Don't wait for people to ask you to do so.

    Check signage above pay stations to know east or west side for your bus.

    Keep your smart trip card away from everything. Other cards, your phone , etc. Otherwise , trying to leave the parking lot is going to suck when it says you have no money.

    Every train from this station goes downtown... so don't be the one who asks.

    During rush hour, can you please walk down the escalator... Not just stand there?! You make me miss my bus with this line!

    Choose your train car toward the back if this is ur last stop otherwise it will take forever to get off the platform

    Why is the metro wasting money on floors that dont need to be fixed? They should spend their money on creating a second exit. Idiots.
