Brilliant scheme, will abuse it

From 14 February, directional markings will be installed in several Jubilee Line platforms. These are designed to encourage Tube passengers to allow fellow travellers off the trains first before boarding. Makes sense and thereotically it is a simple yet brilliant idea. Even better for people like me whose journeys includes guessing where train doors will be when they stop at the platform by looking for signs of wear and tear on the yellow line, this scheme will be a boon to those who are keen to stay a step ahead - if only to get a seat in our cattle carriages.

also another trick as well as looking for worn paint is to stand by the floor where "mind the gap" is written on the platform
