Queensland Rail Parody Posters - Train Etiquette, Super Simple Stuff



In 2011, Queensland Rail launched a "children's book" style etiquette campaign to educate commuters on how to behave appropriately on the train. Being simple and succint, the posters captured the public's attention.

Then, the web got a hold of them!

Because the campaign was so popular, Queensland Rail released an app in 2012 — which is no longer available — for people to create their own versions of the posters. Some of these creations tackle more serious problematic train behaviors, some are distasteful, some are downright offensive, some are even disturbing, but a few will give you a much needed chuckle.

More About Queensland's Train Etiquette Campaign

The etiquette campain's original intent was about influencing the customers who disturb the journey for other travellers to ensure that everyone’s journey as pleasant and comfortable as it can be. Thankfully, such things are still a priority in some places around the globe so "kudos" to Queensland Rail for making the effort to bring awareness to behaving with courtesy and respect while travelling.

Here is the top 15 behavioural issues they wanted to address based on customer complaints

  1. Keep your feet on the floor, do not put feet on seats.

  2. If you are occupying a Priority Seat, vacate the seat for someone who has a disability, is elderly, pregnant or carrying young children.

  3. Take your rubbish off the train when you disembark.

  4. Do not consume food or drinks (other than water) on the train.

  5. When you are waiting to board the train, stand aside to let customers disembark the train first.

  6. Arrive at the platform at least two minutes prior to the departure time of your train.

  7. If you are occupying a designated a wheelchair space by sitting or standing in it, or with bags, bicycles or prams, you must vacate the space for a person in a wheelchair.

  8. Refrain from having loud conversations, talking on mobile phones or listening to loud musical devices when travelling in a quiet carriage, and keep noise to a minimum in all other carriages.

  9. Allow more customers to board the train during busy periods by moving down the walkway inside the carriage.

  10. Place your bag on your knee or under the seat, not on the seat, to allow room for others to sit down.

  11. Ensure the safety of other customers by keeping bags out of walkways and away from train doors at all times.

  12. If you are occupying a seat next to the walkway, stand to allow customers to pass you when they are disembarking the train, or if they wish to sit in the window seat.

  13. Do not take bicycles on the train during peak periods.

  14. Allow other customers to disembark the train before you, do not push or barge.

  15. Move along the platform and board the first or last carriages on the train to alleviate congestion on the middle carriages.
