    What has been your worst experience on either a tube / bus / train / escalator / lift?

    (I need to collect primary research for my project and any response would be very welcome, thank you )

    i saw a guy get squished in a train door trying to jump back on
    i once meant to go to the next town via train but accidentially got on the fast train to london which had no stops until there
    i once nearly got hit by a train

    me and trains dont mix apparently

    Bus was very very packed, nearly every seat had been taken on both decks. I walk up to the top deck and stack on the last step and my face hits the floor and the whole bus goes silent and everyone stares... I then try to pretend like nothing has happened and walk along the top deck and see a seat free at the back of the bus, Im about to sit down and the bus brakes and I smash my face once again onto the back window of the bus

    I really don't have any major public transport catastrophe stories but I have come incredibly close to be flung down the stairs in a double decker bus multiple times
