Gross Things People Were Caught Doing On Public Transport

by Ariana

If you live in a city, or even a big town... there's likely a pubic transport system. While we are grateful that affordable (usually) mass-transport exists, there is just something icky about it, and I have never spoken to a single person who doesn't agree with that.

People just seem to think public transport is an invitation to act buck-wild and quite frankly, grotesquely. For me, being on public transport should be the same as being in a restaurant, or a library... basically any public space.

For other people, that just doesn't seem to be the case. The stories I have heard... we could talk for hours, but instead of telling, how about showing!

Below are 30 people who got caught out being super gross on public transport. Get ready to feel seriously GROSSED out.

These all came from a now archived Reddit thread, but we've handpicked the best (or worst?) for you!
