Questions about situations that arise while on public transport such as trains, buses, coaches, planes or boats.

Public transport is a key aspect of travelling in every day life. Travelling on public transport involves being in close proximity to other commuters, in a small confined space. While it is usually only for a short time it can be over prolonged times, for example on long coach trips. Some examples of public transport include:

  • Buses/Coaches
  • Trains/Trams
  • Aeroplanes
  • Taxis

Being in close proximity to a large group of random people can often cause issues, typically from differing habits (like smoking), or from differing social/religious backgrounds (like what type of expletives they use), and can also bring up other awkward social situations involving people you have never met before.
