Public Transit is a Public Good

Greetings from a field trip to Leipzig. Riding trains is so nice. There was a certain silence and peace after all the exiting passengers left the platform. The train was standing by to depart.

Humanity always benefits from building and maintaining public transportation systems. Cars separate people, whereas transit creates space that lets people be together to practice respect of each other and let us go about our business.


Small signs in public toilet spaces

Small signs on a Czech train (Berlin to Prague) informing passengers not to place trash into the the toilet. I love that they have icons of an apple core, aluminium cans, and I think a toothpaste tube.

Small signs like this often exist in public toilet spaces. A toilet is designed for human waste/fluids. It’s not a trash bin, but sadly passengers have used it as such and train staff had to deal with it. A good example of awareness, or lack of awareness on the part of train participants. What is obvious to some, is not obvious to others.
