Behaviours in the process of disappearing

BEHAVIOURS IN THE PROCESS OF DISAPPEARING

They are back! You’ll recognize them by their behaviour in buses and the métro. Their behaviour dates back to when they hunted mammoths and lived in caves. Just who are we talking about? The #prehistoriques of course!

Watch out for bad behaviour when you use public transit.

#PRÉHISTORIQUES

Do you have suggestions of behaviours to avoid in public transit? Let us know on our social media platforms by using the #prehistoriques. Who knows? We could illustrate your prehistoric behavior proposals and share them on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.

#1 REMOVE YOUR BACKPACK

Remove your backpack, even if you're carrying your meal.

Remove your backpack to take up less space.

#2 SHARE THE TRIPOD

Share the tripod, even if you’re tracking a mammoth.

In the métro, improve your stability by holding the tripod with your hand only. This way, others can use it.

#3 LET OTHERS EXIT BEFORE YOU ENTER

Let others exit before you enter, even if you have a beast hot on your heels.

In the bus and métro network, improve fluidity by letting others exit before you enter.

#4 TALK MORE QUIETLY

alk more quietly, even if you don’t have the latest generation phone.

When using public transit, respect others by not talking too loudly on the phone.

#5 TURN DOWN THE VOLUME

Turn down the volume, even if you’ve just discovered music.

When using public transit, respect others by keeping the sound on your electronic devices to yourself.

#6 KEEP YOUR TRANSIT FARE

Keep your transit fare, even if you don’t know what it’s for.

Whether travelling by bus or métro, your validated transit fare serves as proof of payment for the duration of your trip. Keep it to avoid a fine of $150 (minimum) plus applicable fees.

#7 MOVE TOWARD THE BACK

Move toward the back, even if it’s unknown territory.

On the bus, move toward the back to make room for customers who are boarding. Better boarding fluidity reduces time spent at bus stops during trips.

#8 CLEAR THE RESERVED AREA

Clear the reserved area in a bus or the métro when a wheelchair user, a person travelling with a stroller or any other person requires this space.

#9 OFFER YOUR SEAT

In a bus or the métro, look around you and be courteous by offering your seat to a person who needs it.

#10 DON’T GET TOO COMFORTABLE

When using public transit, leave seats clean and available for other passengers by not putting your feet, bags or other personal items on the seats.

#11 PICK UP YOUR NEWSPAPER

Leaving newspapers on platform and train seating can cause service slowdowns. When newspapers blow around, they can block doors or end up on the tracks. Take them with you or recycle them when you leave the station.

#12 HAVE YOUR TRANSIT FARE READY

To speed up boarding times on buses, have your transit fare ready to validate as soon as you get on.

#13 HOLD ON TO YOUR BAGS

In a bus or the métro, make sure you hold on tightly to your bags. Keep the central aisle and doors clear at all times. This will allow other customers to move around safely.

#14 HOLD ON TIGHTLY TO YOUR PHONE

All objects that end up on the tracks, such as phones, cause service disruptions. Hold on tightly to your phone when on the platform and stay behind the yellow line.

#15 IN THE EVENT OF AN INCIDENT, CALL FOR ASSISTANCE

Avoid pulling the métro’s emergency brake unnecessarily. Speak to the operator to resolve the situation quickly and get help as soon as possible.
