“When we were trans­fer­ring from Sub­way Line 6 to Sub­way Line 4, a man car­ry­ing an elec­tric scooter bumped into my friend and hurt his leg.”

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - WORD MATTERS -

So said a Bei­jing res­i­dent sur­named Lü. Ac­cord­ing to Lü, a man bumped into some pas­sen­gers when trans­fer­ring in­side the Bei­jing sub­way. Many peo­ple com­plained about his scooter but he ig­nored them. He even rode the scooter on the plat­form but was stopped by staff. One sub­way em­ployee told a re­porter that fold­ing bi­cy­cles and small scoot­ers are not pro­hib­ited in the sub­way, but their size should meet spec­i­fi­ca­tions, and that rid­ing scoot­ers on the plat­form is strictly for­bid­den.
