    Sketchy at night but a super convenient and affordable place to park before taking BART one stop to downtown SF.

    This station really needs a parking garage badly. Good luck finding parking on weekends, specially during the holidays.

    Four lines pass through this station throughout the day: Pittsburg/Bay Point-SFO/Millbrae, Richmond-Daly City/Millbrae, Fremont-Daly City and Dublin/Pleasanton-Daly City.

    On ur way to SF? Look to the north on the ride for West Oakland BART for some great views of gentrification and displacement.

    If you need to catch a taxi, go to 12 street instead. Impossible to get a taxi at West Oakland.

    Don't smile at the driver as the train pulls in. He'll hold everything up trying to get your number.

    Want your bike ridable when you return to it here? Use the bikelink lockers. I've seen too many locks and cables cut in pieces here.

    Look north from the back of the SF bound platform to see Mandela parkway, a section of the SF bay trail. Great place to ride your bike!

    Heading across the Bay? While the train drives through the Transbay Tube, count how many emergency lights you see in 11 seconds. Multiply that number by 3 and you'll get your train's approximate mph!

    You will only get shot if you are an idiot doing something wrong. If you obey the law you will be fine.

    Like the one that takes up four seats and yells at you if you talk to loud. Look for her in the third to last car of the bay point train sleeping through the morning commute.
