Golden Rules for Public Transport
Stand back to let other passengers on to the train - no barging.
Move down the carriages - don't form a 'clump' near the doors, preventing other passengers getting on.
Any requests (to move down, move to one side), should be prefaced by a polite "Excuse me please"
Don't spill over into the neighbouring seats - tuck bags neatly under your feet.
If train seats are strewn with discarded newspapers, move them to the shelf behind the seats; don't toss them on the floor.
Be aware that your headphones might be leaking sound and irritating other passengers - switch down the volume.
Give up your seat to elderly people, anyone who is obviously pregnant, carrying a small child or is clearly in need.
Keep personal grooming private: avoid applying make-up on public transport.
On escalators keep to the right, and be aware - if you're ambling in corridors - that other people may be in a hurry and anxious to get past.
