Travel Tip of the Day: Stand to the Side as You Wait

Greyhound Bus

Stand to the Side as You Wait You’d think this is common sense—but it amazes me, when I travel or at home, to see people standing in the middle of the doorway on a train, bus or even elevator as they wait to get on. Stand to the side and let people get off before […]
