New York, voted the rudest state, could sure use a heavy dose of courtesy, especially on public transit. Hopefully, people learn from and adhere to the suggestions presented in the MTA's colorfully-designed placards. Commuting around the city would become far more bearable.
Akin to Queensland Rail's 'Super Simple Stuff' train etiquette campaign, "Courtesy Counts, Manners Make a Better Ride" is the message the MTA is trying to get across to customers who ride the trains and buses.
• “Step Aside to Let Others Off First”
• “Keep Your Stuff to Yourself”
• “Take Your Pack Off Your Back”
• “Offer Your Seat to an Elderly, Disabled, or Pregnant Person”
• “Take Your Litter Off With You”
• “Keep the Sound Down”
No No’s include:
• “Pole Are For Your Safety, Not Your Latest Routine”
• “Clipping? Primping?”
• “Don’t be a Pole Hog”
• “It’s a Subway Car Not a Dining Car”
• “Blocking Doors”
• “Dude…..Stop the Spread, Please”
Here are some of the signs you will see during your commute in NYC. When you see them, especially if someone is not following a sign's suggestion, take a picture and email it to Man's Marbles so we can post it.
