Would anyone help me with this:
If I'm already inside the coach of the subway, standing near the doors. I think there are some passengers that will get off soon. What should I say to my friends to make way for the alighting passengers. Like

  1. "lets go inside" or
  2. "let's go further" or
  3. "let's go to the center of the coach"

Wonder which sounds correct and normal. Thank you!

Perhaps those are used in some regions, but as far as I know, they don't seem right.

"Let's go inside" doesn't quite make sense since you are already inside. (I think you are trying to say let's go to the center. Read below.)

"Let's go further" could make sense if you're already moving towards a particular section. As an initial command, it doesn't make sense.

"Let's go to the center of the coach" could work if standing in the "center" doesn't block exiting passengers.

I would say

  1. Let's step/move aside.
  2. Let's get/move out of the way.
  3. Let's go/move to the [location].
  4. Let's go/move further to the [location].

where the [location] is a place that does not block the exiting passengers, like the back/front/center/etc. You can use 4 when your initial movement was insufficient. To the [location] is optional in 4, since the location should be clear from context.

  • Thanks. Would "go along" make any sense at all? @Max

  • At the moment, I think no, if you're trying to avoid them. If you are trying to follow the crowd, then yes, that makes sense.
