Absolutely!  On our city buses it is a requirement.  Signs are clearly marked that the front seats are reserved for the elderly and disabled.  You will have to move if you don't do it voluntari ...

I will never take the seats reserved for the elderly, physically impaired, pregnant women or people carrying babies. It is politeness.

The elderly here on a bus would be more likely to get beaten up if they complained. No respect anymore.

too many fakers

I see it too many times where wannable old farts chase down a bus and when they get in they pretend they can not walk. I will rather give my seat to pretty girl than elderly because pretty girls wear high heels and very uncomfortable standing in the bus. But now a days what are the chances of pretty girl riding a bus.

Right. I always offer seats to people who deserve them. On the other side in many cases I saw,especially older women, rushing into the sub/bus/... only to then say they are old,disabled etc to get a seat. Once I got really fed up(I was already standing and had no seat but the woman wanted the seat of a 30sth lady) and said:"You didn`t seem to have any problems when you rushed into the train, even pushed others away. And now you demand a seat because you are weak and elderly?Shameless"
I hate those people....always rushing into the subway first, not waiting until others got off first.Mostly older women.   Makes me angry.

Wow -  I am feeling very old fashioned here.  It shouldn't even matter if the can 'rush to the bus' or not.  I guess I'm of the opinion that life is hard and there should be some perks at the end.  It something you deserve because you've endured it all for so long.  We have a saying 'age before beauty' - you let them get ahead of you and you let them have your seat.  It's just good manners.
