Overhead racks above your seat are perfect for cabin bags and smaller items
Don’t block aisles or doorways with your bags and please don’t place them on the seat next to you or in the designated wheelchair areas

Never leave luggage or personal items unattended at stations. Unattended items will be removed without warning and may be damaged or destroyed
