Answering mounting complains regarding passengers’ clipping their finger nails, eating food and putting their feet on seats while riding crowded subway cars, the Toronto Transit Commission has made an interesting announcement to launch new “personal subway cars” on Monday. It has been disclosed that while aboard these subway cars passengers will be completely free to occupy extra seats, play music at top volume and engage in loud, annoying cellphone conversations.
The announcement was made by TTC in shape of a YouTube video on Monday, which shows their spokesperson, Brad Ross, and chief customer officer, Chris Upfold, demonstrating the features of the new cars while they rode it with their feet up on vacant seats and chewing through a tub of fried chicken. Upfold mentions in the video that “we’re going to address a whole slate of customer complaints with this one single innovation,” and “on all of our trains there will be a single car that people can think of as their personal space. And on that car, they can do anything they want and ignore all the people around them.”
Furthermore, TTC asserts that the primary feature of the new personal car will be the ability for customers to clip their nails as they ride along. Upfold alleges, in the video, that “there’s no point in having a personal car if you can’t do your personal grooming in public.” Also sharing the idea of personal subway platforms, Upfold alleged “that way people won’t have to wait for each other to get on and off the train, they can just go ahead and do it at exactly the same time.”
