Could it be true??

When I read this headline I knew it had to be a hoax. Could it be — the Shanghainese lining up to get on the subway?

Wish I could have been there.
Must say, I have never been so fortunate.
Perhaps they didn’t see any old ladies or pregnant women nearby to steal seats from and thus lost interest in rushing in.

Its all true, people in shanghai metro, douring rush hour at least, line up quite nicely. Actually people are made to line up by the people who work in the metro. So if you are 1st, 2nd or 3rd you will probably get a seat in the first stop but after that the fastest is the one who gets it and its quite fun to see how grownups are reduced to children. Also metro TV’s show how to act politely – people enter the metro from sides and exit from the middle – generally this rule is also followed. But they still like to push when getting out of the metro. And the most over crowded stops- People square and Shanghai railway station are still a nightmare even if they queue and to be avoided douring rush hour :).
