Courtesy on public transport – Part III

TRANSIT took note of the following two photos, taken by public transport users, showing very rude & discourteous behaviour.

In the first photo, a very pregnant passenger is shown standing on the Kelana Jaya LRT line while a nearby seat is taken up by a backpack. It is not known if the passenger in the black t-shirt is the one responsible – but either way, the photo suggests a stunning lack of courtesy.

In the second photo a young boy appears to be doing gymnastic activities by hanging from the straps of a KTM Komuter train. Aside from the inherent danger to himself and other passengers, the very idea that someone would behave like this on public transport – is sad.

TRANSIT Says:

Shame…this is exactly the wrong kind of behaviour. Perhaps KTM and RapidKL can start a proper courtesy campaign.

  1. Sadly that is a typical sight on all our train systems including KLIA Ekspres and Transit. It is done by some individuals from all genders, all nationalities and all ages. There is a common link, lack of manners and lack of consideration and selfishness. Fortunately more passengers are tackling this type of ignorant moronic behaviour and getting the thoughless tykes to shift their bags. Publicity by the train operators may help, action by standing passengers is even more effective . I travel on 6 trains a day and never stand if there is a seat, with or without a bag on it.

    1. Who is the Malaysian equivalent? Adibah Noor appears in a lot of commercials, and she was in the Phua Chu Kang Sdn. Bhd. that appeared for a short season – along with Harith Iskandar.

  2. Instead of just taking photos of whats wrong. Tell the person what they are doing is wrong. Some people don’t know what they are doing is wrong and would correct their mistake if they were told.
    Imagine if a teacher just take a picture of a student mistake and brags it on the internet. No progress is done.

    1. @Anon – agreed: but at the same time, now that we have seen the photo and posted it here, some discussion will start. Also, we will work with RapidKL and other operators to improve customer behaviour.
