Beijing public bus entrances blocked, passengers climb through windows to squeeze onto bus
February 13th around 5:30 in the evening, a Route 815 public bus near the Beijing Guomao area was jam-packed. With the bus doors blocked by passengers, some passengers struggled to climb into the bus through the windows. A traffic officer on the side tried to keep order without effect, and could only help stuff the passengers one by one into the bus. 15 minutes later, this severely overloaded Route 815 public bus finally set off. According to traffic police, this place is always crammed to the max during the evening rush hour, and with it also being Monday, things were even worse.

Seen this personally in Henan…still in shock to this day…
Don’t argue over who is uncivilized, because actually no one has a choice about it. Don’t squeeze on and you won’t be getting home.
The subways are about the same now, only that the subway windows can’t be opened. If they could be opened, then people would be squeezing in through them as well.
We’ve caught up to India now…
So the image and character of the capital’s people is this poor, eh? Woohoo!
We should seriously reflect why such a big city, especially the capital, is this crowded? What kind of urbanization do we need?
I rode the bus in Beijing once and decided I would never ride it again.
Taking a look at the Times Square image advertisement again, I think this is the real living situation and image of the majority of Chinese people…
No matter how tough life is, it still must be lived. If you can’t fight it, then you have to learn to enjoy it!
Don’t dare to make fun of Indian trains anymore.
You can see that the bus is actually quite empty. It’s mainly that some people aren’t orderly.
…hundreds of thousands all running to Beijing, how could it be any different?!! During the Chinese New Year holiday, Beijing’s public transportation were so empty!! Always saying Beijing this is bad or that is bad…if you have any worth, then don’t come!!
Comments from NetEase:
A Beijing brother and a Shanghainese person were chatting.
The Beijinger says: So unlucky, my wife had a miscarriage from all the crowding in public transportation.
The Shanghainese says: That’s nothing, my wife was made pregnant from all the crowding in public transportation.
The Beijinger: …
A startling display of the original character of our “countrymen”, no wonder Hong Kongers don’t want mainlanders to go to Hong Kong… We should work on improving ourselves, and not go out and embarrass ourselves…
Animal, hands off that butt… [referring to the first photo]

Looks like it is migrant workers who are crowding/rushing the public bus. Actually, if you look inside the bus, there aren’t really a lot of people. It’s just that even when there is clearly space inside the bus, some people simply refuse to go to the inside/back and insist on standing by the bus door blocking the rest of the people from getting on, which is extremely annoying.
Let the LD squeeze onto public transportation for a month and I bet this kind of situation will immediately be improved. Except there’s the possibility that LD riding public transportation will be beaten up and killed by groups of people, and the risk is too great.
Just after laughing at Indian trains, we see those laughing squeezing onto public buses, sigh…
