    Be sure to only cross on the crosswalks - if not, you WILL get yelled at.

    Don't upgrade your Clipper at the transbay. The machines use dial up and you'll miss your bus.

    The transbay busses leave on schedule. This is a very good thing.

    In no other major American city will you see transit employees yelling at pedestrians trying to get to their bus

    For all the people whining that the buses leave immediately at their scheduled departure time, guess what? That's because it's the time they are SCHEDULED to DEPART. That's how it's supposed to work.

    Why is it that I always have to arrive at the exact moment the F is leaving for the East Bay? Every time!

    Always thank your driver. They might drive safer.

    There is NO change machine at the TBT. Get change first or you'll be asking everyone for change. Like a bum.

    Go online to set up your Clipper Card to auto-reload when it runs out of money. Never wait in line again!

    When they say the bus leaves at 7:30pm, they mean 7:30pm

    They won't let you use the PUBLIC bathrooms (even though i had my clipper card!) What's the point of having them?!

    These drivers will leave as soon as the door closes. Even if you are looking at them thought the door. No mercy.

    The people that guide the buses also yell at jaywalking pedestrians. Avoid that, they take it personally.

    Only 2 bikes per bus. Come early if you need to get your bike across the bay.

    You can now use a PUBLIC RESTROOM! AC Transit passengers can show a Clipper card, ask the AC Transit Officers to let you use one in the "small main office"! Thanks for listening ACT!

    I really miss the old terminal. It was a more classy place... Well except for the urine smell.

    Clipper machines take forever to pay via credit / debit due to having to dial in every time.

    If u r riding ur bike, it's always nice to ask where the other bike rider gets off. So if u get off 1st, u can put ur bike on last!

    This is the holy grail for bus fans in the Bay Area, everything from MUNI to SamTrans to AC Transit to Greyhound. There is something here for every type of bus fan.

    Remember: Only Transbay employees have the skills necessary to reach the central area without using the awkwardly situated crosswalk.
