It is important to remember that you are not the only passenger on the train hence keep the noise at a minimum. Try and contain your excitement and respect the other passengers. Also, try and make friends and conversation while on the train.

Dress appropriately

As in every code of conduct, even on the SGR, wear appropriate attire. Avoid wearing skimpy and revealing clothes. Save those for the beach.

Save the alcohol for the destination

Alcohol on the train is banned after a few people misused the privilege. Alcohol also has the effect of making people do crazy things so it is advisable not to travel when under the influence.

Mind others when taking selfies

If you don’t take a selfie, were you really there? Taking selfies that invade other people’s privacy is unacceptable. So, when taking your pictures, mind the angles so that you don’t include strangers in your picture.

Stick to your seat

Many people have the annoying habit of seating on the window seat despite it not being their allocated seat on the ticket. Don’t do it!

Arrive an hour in advance

It is always advisable to get to the train terminal early and in advance to avoid waiting on the line for long.
