Even though these subway cars will be delayed (quel surprise), the only thing I wonder about is business of the continuous subway car. If I had to guess, there will be much more foot traffic throughout all cars during the trip. People will go from the front to the back looking for a seat, no? Could be more dangerous than people quickly sitting or hanging onto a germophobey pole. Maybe I’m just boobing it up right now.
And good news for the germophobes – the poles now will have an anti-bacterial coating. Creeps me out a bit, but I’m sure this helps the neurotic in their travels.
