If your city has a metro or train system, you’re probably pretty thankful it’s there. Even if it’s unpredictable and needs a remodel, it’s better than having to deal with city traffic and parking.
That said, there are some people who really take public transport for granted and treat it like it’s their own personal bedroom, bathroom, and… actually, there is no comparison, I don’t know anybody who has a room in their own house where they think it’s appropriate to throw food all over the floor and leave it there.
When you’re using public transport, remember that the “public” means everyone has to use it, and next time, you could be the person getting nail clippings flicked into your lap.

Not Sure What Was Happening Here, But I Bailed At The Next Stop
As far as the number of unique bacteria found, the New York metro blew London out of the water by the measurements of one study. It mostly paints a similar picture of pathogens that are usually riding around with us in quantities too small to do us harm, but there are some additional residents: New York is ruled by a type of bacteria that’s used to clean up toxic metals from wastewater. Benevolent bacteria used to ferment kimchi and age cheese also like to tag along with metro riders.
In one statistic that's so ominous it's almost funny, researchers also found an abundance of DNA that didn’t match any identifiable organism.
