Cleanliness? Have you seen CTA, WMATA, BART, or MTA? BART and WMATA suffered from dirty carpets and seats, something MARTA got rid of years ago. MTA and CTA are old systems.

B is dirtier than A. Therefor A is not dirty.

Hmmm... Yeah... That is logical.

I guess personally, I do not view MARTA as dirty, but then again I do live in an area with manicured lawns and perfectly bleached buttholes.

You know what they say: If you smell **** everywhere you go, check under your own shoe.

MARTA is no dirtier than any other piece of infra. and actually quite a bit cleaner than most. I wouldn't eat off the seats, but I won't worry about catching anything either. Hell, you're probably less likely to get sick on a train than a hospital.

Your personal attacks are unwarranted and offensive.

You should review the forum rules and learn some etiquette!

And to the other poster who said the trains smell like urine, no they do not. I suspect you've never actually been on a MARTA train before.

The trains aren't smelly to me. Even though I am an infrequent rider, I have to tell you this: I normally take the stairs, but the elevators at Lindbergh and the airport station do indeed smell like ****. I am directly stating there is a situation not with the trains but with the elevators for sure in the two locations I mentioned.
