Passengers ignore hygiene standards on buses

Reader complains about passenger’s bad behaviour on the bus.

Despite the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) requesting people to not put their feet up on seats in public buses, the issue continues. If I am not mistaken, there is a fine for the same, too. But, people still behave like they are sitting at home or on a couch rather than in a public transport vehicle.

I have seen this practice several times before. It is almost a daily occurrence. There seems to be no effect on people. Their feet could be dirty and stain the upholstery. Imagine entering a bus and seeing such a sight — it is disgusting.

I just hope people were more courteous towards other passengers and refrained from doing this in the future. I also feel that the RTA should install cameras all over the buses and fine such people — that’s the only way they will learn.
