#Yeg ETS Etiquette - Be an Every Day Hero

Be an Every Day Hero - it is easy to do and it feels great. Being an Every Day Hero is as simple as offering your seat to someone who needs it more than you, letting people get off the bus or train before you try to board, taking your backpack off and holding it in front of you on ETS so that you don't accidentally hit someone with it, and many more simple and courteous things that make everyone's trip on transit a bit more pleasant. Be an Every Day Hero today and find out for yourself just how good it feels.
