Commuters' group report: '10 plagues of the subway'

A rat on the platform, a gag-inducing smell in the car, and watching your transfer train pull away just as your train gets to the station. On any given trip there's going to be something to startle, disgust, or annoy riders.

Funny, my pet peeve is bitchy riders.

 

"He said that the Franklin Avenue stop on the C is the worst, with holes along the platform walls and rats scurrying all over the tracks."

 

And Chambers Street on the (J)(M)(Z) is so much better...

 

"For the germ-concerned, the subway car is an overflowing petri dish of microorganisms."

 

Will some f***ing Purell kill you?

No just tell those who leave it, that they complain of the dirty trains, but they are the ones causing it.....

Try sitting on it instead. It would be a good barrier between you and the filthy seats.......
