I hate crowded public transport and as an alternative to our frequent but crowded tram service, R and I both used the buses that pass by. But, we have lost our nearby bus stops with the recent road and tram works and then anyway, the routes are to be altered and would not suit us mostly anyway. But we do have nice new tram stop opposite The Highrise. I quite happily don't get on the first tram and then get on one soon behind that is not so crowded.
I think I would get a taxi cab or an Uber before I would try to get on a train in such an overpopulated city, such as Dhaka in Bangladesh.
It is one thing to see crowds on train roofs, but quite another to see close ups of people actually getting up there, including women and children. We'll begin with crowded roof photos and then see what really happens personally.
Family nearly aboard here.
Wife/Mother on. Not sure if he managed to get on.
Coming to an Australian city near you soon.
