    30 year woman, 7 months pregnant
    30 year woman, 1 month pregnant
    80 year old man
    60 year old man
    25 year old man with one arm in a sling
    Someone old enough to be your mum/dad but otherwise able bodied
    Able bodied member of the opposite sex, same age as you
    None of the above


    Because of the culture I was raised in, anyone that's visibly older than me. Say 30+

    i give up seats to pregnant people, elderly, people with children, not able bodied people.
    but this once happened and i was quite salty about it. this old man, who had a walking stick, but didnt even use it came on the bus and told me to stand up. i did and went to the seats further back (not even that further back, like one or two steps away). he turned around to talk to his friend 2 seats back!!! and his friend was sitting to no one!!! :unimpressed: he seemed like an entitled person -_-

    Well, I'm barely ever on any buses except the school bus, which is filled with bratty kids.

    But in any other case I wouldn't mind lending my seat to any elderly, disabled or pregnant person.

    I don't see how you could tell if a lady was pregnant at one month tho.

    What about poll options for any child aged under 9? I usually offer up my seat to them as well - especially if their parents are struggling to control them and there are no available seats near me for their child.

    Being a Londoner, "usually" means every other week

    I wouldn't, unless they pay me.
