BIKES TAKE OVER
AS a regular user of public transport, I constantly receive an unpleasant snapshot of a generation that only cares about itself.
Schoolchildren on concession fares often sit comfortably while full-fare paying adults stand and other seats are taken by shopping.
While most people who take bicycles on trains keep them clear of the doors and aisles, using the priority seating areas only when free, this was not the case recently.
On a three-car train, 14 bikes filled the priority seating and the aisle.
This left some seniors standing and an elderly man on a mobility trike unable to board the train.
It seems the Lycra-clad loonies who pay little attention to the road rules and speed past pedestrians on paths now take priority on the train.
