Passenger Safety – NewsDay article

It is critical to your safety to listen to the demonstrations by the airlines and flight attendants. Please always be aware of how many rows away you are from your nearest exit, how to don your oxygen mask over both your nose and mouth, and where your life vests are exactly. Especially if you are in an exit row, you need to know how it operates. It can make all the difference when you are prepared in case of an emergency! Lots more in my book “Remove Before Flight” so that you are more knowledgeable and empowered when taking to the skies!

  1. A color or letter based system is easier because it is exactly that a system. The old CTA system required you to memorize individual unrelated names Ravenswood, O”Hare-Congress-Douglass, Lake-Englewood-Jackson Park. If you only use one of these lines, fine, no big deal. But if you”re trying to use them as a system, memorizing every name becomes difficult and interpreting a map or schedule can become overwhelming for some people. There isn”t a pattern to the naming system, and our brains are trained to remember and interpret interrelated things in patterns. If there is no pattern, it”s harder to remember and initially discern. The color/letter system takes a preexisting pattern that any passenger can easily use and grafts it onto the train lines, allowing people to adapt the train system to a pattern that already exists in their heads instead of needing to add a whole new system to their brain”s internal computing.
