    Guide for Paris Metro System Etiquette

    Many people know some of the rules for using the London Underground, such as letting passengers off the train first and not prying the doors open when the train is trying to take off.

    These rules are announced by station staff through a loudspeaker system.

    Parisians also have rules for their underground system. These rules are distributed by an online ‘politeness’ manual, not translated into English, released by the Paris transport authority to ensure civility prevails at all times.

    Called the "Manuel du savoir-vivre à l’usage du voyageur moderne" or "politeness manual for the modern traveler" there are 12 "commandments" to abide by and comes with illustrations to reinforce the rules.

    The online guide, drawn up using suggestions from the general public, is split into four categories – "helpfulness," "courtesy," "manners," and "politeness."

    The first "commandment" defines courtesy as "understanding that the huge crossed out cigarette on the platform is not a work of art but a ban on smoking".

    The "manners" section requests Parisians to help out lost tourists "in bermuda shirts with a metro map in one hand and the other hand in their hair."

    "Helpfulness" is "holding the door open to the person behind you or taking an old lady's bag on the stairs and returning it to her with a smile at the top."

    "Politeness" is using a handkerchief to wave someone off on the platform and but keeping your germs to yourself by sneezing into a handkerchief.

    Once on the train, don’t provoke a fight with the person who stepped on your toes by mistake. For anyone unaccustomed to riding public transit, rule No. 11 drives home the reality of commuting in an urban sardine can: keep your arms by your sides on very hot days and grab the bottom of the post so you don’t expose your armpit and body odor to the passenger next to you.

    The transit authority warns passengers not to use cellphones or blast loud music on their headphones and don’t stare for a long time at beautiful women.

    Last but not least, the Metro is not to be mistaken for a lavatory.
