A Single Carriage Space

A Single Carriage

Some Co-Researchers also liked the idea of a Metro train being open along its length (as a single carriage), to allow movement at busy times and enable them to see and be visible to the driver. Other Co-Researchers were concerned that this would mean they could not move cars to get away from anti-social behaviour.

Would you like to see this in the Metro?

Current seating arrangements are great more leg room between them would be nice. Remove face to face seating in centre of trams and this will allow for more standing customer at busy times and for luggage. This would also allow space for.pushchairs and wheelchairs on trains. Driver cabs should be fully glazed giving driver/passengers clean view of each other for safety reasons for all.

Single carriage will allow more space for seating

Not much room to sit down and not many people have bags suitcases

I would like the seating plan to remain unchanged although a slightly larger space for improved knee room between passengers in face to face seating or perhaps an equal amount of froward and backward facing seats facing in or opposite to the direction of travel on each side of the carriage would be better. I prefer this transverse type of seating which lessens the effects of motion and the effects of acceleration and braking compared to longitudinal seating which is less comfortable for older passengers and those with disabilities such as back problems. My Concerns about there only being longitudinal seating running along the sides of each carriage and the increase of standing would give a feeling of being boxed in especially at busier times. An even greater concern would be the impact of a larger number of passengers standing and the effects this would have on the stability of the carriages considering there are some very tight curves and some gradients on the systems track. The effects of braking or emergency breaking or derailment may result in more injuries if the carriages have larger open spaces without sections.

I don't like this format as when the train accelerates or brakes you are likely to be pushing the passenger either side of you. I never use those seats on the metros we have now. I would sooner stand.
