Police have arrested a few demonstrators inside a BART station who were among a group of about 75 protesters marching from station to station in The City's downtown.

Still, the evening transit commute in San Francisco ran smoothly.

Acknowledging that disruptive protests have recently angered commuters, demonstrators on Monday decided to stay away from the BART system's train platforms, where protests are barred for safety reasons.

The protesters arrested Monday were not on the platform, but above in the station.

Demonstrators are protesting the July 3 shooting death by BART police of a transient and transit officials shutting off wireless access at its San Francisco stations to quell a planned protest Aug. 11.
