Here's how to use an elevator without stopping.

  1. Hold the close door button until the doors close. Keep holding.
  2. Select your floor and do not let go of the number and close door button until the elevator moves.
  3. This will allow you to go straight to that floor without stopping. Works on every elevator.

    That kind of ignores the people waiting for the elevator on the floors you're passing up. They might be in a hurry also.

    Although this tip might work well it would be a very selfish thing to do because your time is no more important than someone elses time who is waiting to use the service.

    This might allow people with social phobias or claustrophobia to ride elevators. Also, in certain situations, it may provide safety.


    So using this technique can be a handicap accommodation and a safety measure. I hope emergency personnel like EMTs know about it. Thanks for sharing this tip.
