The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

From Platform 1, Northbound

The ramp towards Montgomery Street is behind the rear of the train.

As you go from the front of the train, you reach the building, you pass two blank doors then the waiting room before you reach the exit.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you reach the building, the exit is the first gap on your left, beyond the ticket machine.

Go into the exit, turn right then go down two flights of steps. Turn right at the bottom and continue through the ticket office. It may be easier to avoid any ticket queue by continuing to the wall in front of you. Turn right, continue to the wall in front of you then turn right and go up two flights of steps. Turn right at the top, continue through the door in front of you then turn left onto the platform. We believe you're beside the front half of longer trains and about in the middle of shorter ones.

GO TO END

Via the Ramp

Go beyond the rear of the train, take the turning right then left and go down the first ramp. At the bottom, turn right (180 degrees) and go down the second ramp to street level. Note there's an electrical stanchion in the path on this second ramp.

Continue, across Montgomery Street, to the wall in front of you then turn left and go through the subway under the tracks.

Turn right then follow the building on your right, which juts out in two stages before you reach the main entrance. Continue, past the building then take the turning right for the ramp.

You leave the forecourt going up the slope, the windows of the station building are on your right.

Turn left and continue to the top of the first ramp. Turn right, pass the building on your right then turn right again. Continue up the second ramp then continue onto the platform. You're at the front of longer trains and before the front of shorter ones. We suggest you continue to the building on your right.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Southbound

The ramp exit, to the forecourt is at the front of longer trains and beyond the front of shorter ones.

As you go from the front of the train, you reach the building, which retreats to your right, across the exit door.
