Please take off backpacks while on the bus / streetcar…

MUNI could be enhanced a great deal if its riders would simply take off their backpacks and hold them in their hands while riding MUNI.

  • For a start, backpacks jutting out of a rider's back make it difficult for others to move to the rear of the bus.
  • Additionally, as riders wearing backpacks move around, they swing those packs perilously close to those seated nearby.
  • The problem is exacerbated because some of those backpacks are the functional equivalent of nylon SUVs.

I understand that sometimes one simply doesn't have extra hands.  Regardless, many riders are well able to take their packs off before getting on the bus or streetcar and so make their profile friendlier to their fellow passengers…
