TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

Getting Around

By Metro
There are two different types of carriage. One is for women and children only, the other is for anyone at all. Which means a woman can sit in the same carriage as a man, but the man cannot return the favour. So if you are a man waiting on the platform and you see nothing but women when the door opens, rush to the next carriage before the doors close. Or wait for the next train; they are frequent.
