Madrid calls for bus transport courtesy
Starting from this month, bus travelers in Madrid can see signs calling for the respect of the bus seat boundaries. This initiative is aimed at men who invade the space of others with their overly spread legs.
Madrid Municipal Transport Company decided that “manspreading” is a problem that needs addressing following a campaign by a women’s group. The group gathered more than 10,000 signatures for the introduction of these signs.
Madrid is not the first city to tackle the “manspreading” issue. New York, Mexico City and Japan have conducted similar campaigns.
