    This station seems to be rather on the quiet side.

    Be sure to swipe out if you are using a clipper card!

    Slitting your wrists or Drinking Drain-O would probably be better bets than stepping in front of a train. You probably won't draw as much attention though.

    Some days you would just rather not drive but I wish bathrooms were more easily accessible on these trains!

    They let you have drink and food unlike BART. No booze after 9:00 pm on baseball nights.

    Please don't merge individual trains into this venue. Individual trains are legitimate venues per foursquare.com/info/venueguidelines - "Ok: ... Subways, buses, and trains ...". Safe travels! -Tantek Read more

    Take the baby bullet ! Worth the drive to a station that it stops at.

    The express trains, while less frequent and not stopping at every stop, provide a much nicer train experience- newer, cleaner, brighter, more open, tables with electric outlets... Do it!

    Even on full trains most people don't go up top in the back were there are 2 side-by-side seats. I always get a seat there. You may need to ask the guy next to u 2 move his bag, but that's fair

    Wear a coat. It's a 90 degree day everywhere else and cold at this station because of the wind,.

    Rolling objects like Caltrain do not count as venues, the stations they stop at however do count.

    Sit up stairs if you have a backpack or other. Easy storage, or, is it stowage?

    Never been asked for a ticket before zone 2. Northbound trains are nicer than southbound trains

    To avoid glaring sun, make sure you sit on the East side of the train.

    Hold on to your ticket, multiple controls in a single trip- mighty conductors!

    Bring a long book or a good game in your bag each day. You never know when it will be a long ride home.
