Feet, bags and luggage on seats tops commuters' gripes

PASSENGERS placing their feet, bags and luggage on train seats was the number one train etiquette gripe reported to Queensland Rail last year.

Corporate and Customer Relations general manager Rebecca Masci said there were many bizarre train etiquette reports, including a man shaving his head and another playing a ukulele, but commuters were most bothered by people using more than their fair share of seating.

"It's clear through feedback provided to Queensland Rail that our customers cherish their space and a seat, especially after a long day at work," Ms Masci said.

"The most common grievance when it comes to train etiquette is feet, bags and luggage on train seats, closely followed by people travelling with bikes in peak hour and loud conversations in the quiet carriage."
