    i’ve seen a lot of such footage where conductors spend like 30 seconds trying to forcefully pack in a entire train carriage in order for the doors to close and i’ve always found it to be so weird

    like, if your metro is so busy, i’m assuming you have trains running every 60-90 seconds, which translates roughly to the minimum safe distance between trains, therefore they literally just spent like half the time they’d have to wait for another train to come simply trying to shove in one passenger, delaying not only everyone on that train, but also everyone is subsequent trains

    where is the logic?

      Assuming this is Japan. Every train is that busy during rush hour. Waiting for the next one literally wouldn’t have helped. Also, Japanese train timetables are insane and missing one train can ruin your entire day, because you’ll miss all your connections, which could well include the Shinkansen because commuting between cities or even provinces on high speed rail is very common in East Asia.

      Well, I don’t think this assumption adds up:

      if your metro is so busy, i’m assuming you have trains running every 60-90 seconds

      It could be running every 5-10 minutes and sometimes there’s just too many to fit into the current train, so they have to wait for the next train. And then if that particular man is in a rush, he won’t voluntarily get off nor do they want to forcefully pull him out.

      At least that’s how it was pre-COVID in the nearest big city from where I live…

      In a travelers.zip like this, I’m not sure how the one behind everyone is going to come out and has to go down several stations before. But this is a common scene in Japan, even though there are trains every few minutes. I think it could be alleviated during peak hours, by adding a few more wagons to the trains, this would be the most logical thing to do.

      Yeah, if even the public transport in a given place is like this, you’re probably getting backed up for hours if you try to drive a private car to the same place. So, definitely not a solution.
