Pros: I enjoyed our driver Mike. He is considerate, kind, answers questions and just good soul overall. He let me use Bathroom at station in Van Nuys. I appreciate that so much. Cons: I’d say opening speech from driver about what to look out for, what stop is coming up next so we can know. We need wifi onboard so we can work our devices. It only works on train. Tips: Just be courteous and kind to other passengers and learn how to share our space.

Pros: Not much waiting and constantly on the move. Easy process in purchasing the tickets and changing the ticket as well if needed. Cons: Some form of bag security on the train. I had to keep going to the luggage section at each stop because there were suspicious people sitting next to the bags. Tips: Keep your valuables in a separate bag that should be on you at all times. Place your luggage in a way where the zippers aren't visible and and have the main opening face away from the walkways in the train.

Pros: I liked that I had my own space and it wasn't crowded. Cons: Sometimes cleaning the sticky messes on tables. Tips: Don't be scared and make sure you have time to make it to your ride. I recommend showing up early.
