Friday fun poll: what’s the nicest thing another rider has ever done for you?

Friday fun poll: what’s the nicest thing another rider has ever done for you?

Kind gestures from riders always give you a smile!

OK friends! Here’s a fun poll just in time for the weekend. While I was riding transit with my baby daughter, I’d was always warmly surprised at how kind my fellow riders were: people would always give up seats so we could sit down.

This got me thinking about the wide variety of kindnesses our fellow riders offer us day to day. So here’s our Friday fun poll question: what’s the nicest thing another rider has ever done for you?

What's the nicest thing another rider has ever done for you?

  • Other (32%, 24 Votes)
  • Given up their seat for me when I needed it (24%, 18 Votes)
  • Stepped off the bus to let me out first (20%, 15 Votes)
  • Helped me figure out where I was going (13%, 10 Votes)
  • Asked the driver to hold the vehicle for me (12%, 9 Votes)

Total Voters: 76

Of course, you’re only restricted to one choice to make the poll results more conclusive :) But feel free to elaborate in the comments below if you have more kind stories to share, especially if you picked “Other”!
