I’ve given my seat up many times on public transportation for someone who looked like they needed it. It didn’t have to be an older person or disabled.
Sometimes you can just tell someone has had a rough day, they are carrying bags of groceries or just seem weak. I’m able, so I never mind and I always think that I sit too much during the day that a few more minutes of standing is no big deal.
But the new debate is, would you offer your seat to a young child? Is this a yay or nay on this one
