What is that loop you hold on to when you ride a bus/subway?
Is it called a loop of some sort? Or handle? In the picture below, an invisible... ?
The standing passenger has his own page.
hanging strap: a strap suspended from the ceiling with a handle provided for standing passengers to hold on to
handrails: running horizontally along the ceiling
stanchions: vertical poles
grab rails: smaller hand rails attached to seats, doors and doorways
And whether it is a train, subway car, bus, or car I would probably just call them oh-shit handles.
It is called a handgrip in some cities, but the terms bus handle, bus pull handle, bus pull ring, city bus handle are also in use.
