When you travel on public transport, it’s a much better experience when trains and buses are clean and tidy. Sadly, this is not always the case.
Vanessa Bond is the National Campaign for Courtesy’s representative for travel and transport and takes a keen interest when she is travelling. Lately she has been focusing on the amount of litter people leave on the London Underground and has been taking photos as a record.
“It annoys me intensely that people are so inconsiderate and just leave everything behind them,” says Vanessa. “One of the photos shows a can of beer left on a seat, and alcohol is banned on public transport!
“The trains always leave their depots very clean, but within minutes they become like rubbish tips. The same can be said for South West Trains that I also travel on frequently. The worst is coffee spilt all over the floor.”
What are your thoughts? Does litter spoil your experience of public transport? Do you think everyone should take their litter with them?
