Design flaw? Out of over 10 handgrips on bus, only one is used



STOMPer Davy wonders if the design of handgrips on buses can be improved, after noticing that they are being underutilised on a bus.

Said the STOMPer:

"I was traveling on bus service 171 this morning when I realised that of the more than 10 handrails available, only 1 was utilised.

"It dawned on me that something must be flawed.

"I would like to see some comments and hopefully the bus operator can learn something to improve the design."

Hold onto poles more better for me, since the poles don't move when the bus moves

I believe many would not want to share their smelly armpits to others.

Is the bus even crowded? If it isn't, there's more than enough seats/poles to go around.

I think they should add more poles... instead of hand grip...

I try never to touch the handgrips or poles unless there is an emergency. You never know where the 5 million people before you that touched the pole put their hands at.

True, saw a man dig his nose and touch the pole.. the other was scratching his private part.
