getting on and off the train
Getting on and off the commuter train is a harzardous thing in this city. Passangers getting on board don't usually wait for those alighting it. Everybody rushes. In addition to this, the passangers' platforms at most of the stations are not at the level of the train's doorways but at the level of the rail. It's hazardous for the able-bodied people much less for children and the elderly. And it's certainly is almost impossible for the disable.
