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

    Brian Strauss · January 30
  • James T.

    Catch the train to the east bay at San Francisco's easternmost station.

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

  • Stacy S.

    First and last stop out of Oakland...really convenient.

    Stacy Simmons · May 9, 2013

    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.

    Mind your manners and oakland is a great place to be.

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

    Jessie Lorenz · November 30, 2012
  • Ruth S.

    I like it when the conductors talk like pilots.

    Ruth Storm · October 26, 2012

    Shouldn't get shot for such things, but you are right about being lawful and cooperative with authorities.

    Matthew Brown · September 28, 2012

    I know you want to touch it... But don't.

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

    Don't park your car on the street. Someone stole my car battery on friday in broad daylight...

    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.

    Ciaran McCormack · February 20, 2012
  • Ciaran M.

    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!

    Ciaran McCormack · February 4, 2012

    Get the Clipper card so you don't have to remember your stall number or fumble around for extra cash in the morning

  • Exploratorium

    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!

    Exploratorium · November 2, 2011
  • Daryl B.

    Good to park here then hop into the city for downtown activities. Cheaper than bridge fare and parking in the city!

    Yeah it's underwater. Kinda. Between Embarcadero station in SF under the icy SF bay- not a huge fan of tunnels but we it's a relatively short 4 or five miles
