For thousands of weary commuters on the Long Island Rail Road, standing may be preferable to sitting if a number of reports published by the railroad are any indication.
Not content to brave the dreaded middle seat, commuters are allegedly more willing to stand the length of their commute rather than be squeezed into a spot between a pair of other commuters.
While the LIRR is encouraging the use of all seating according to a Newsday report, other reasons for standing may include trip distance and also if other passengers have taken up the space with their bags or even their feet.
In today’s Patch question, we want to know how your commute is, if you choose to site or stand and the reasons behind it, even if it is the dread of the middle seat. Tell us in the comments.
