Manspreading isn’t the only thing that can cost offenders cash. Eating, drinking, smoking and vaping are also on the list.
Other offenses include: placing chewing gum on seats, occupying more than one seat, blocking a door, disturbing others and playing loud music.
Riders who commit third, fourth and fifth offenses could be banned for 30-90 days.
It’s not just thoughtful to be courteous to your fellow metro riders, it may also save you a lot of trouble from the authorities.
