I took a M7 from Flushing to Penn Station and the whole car was dirty. R the trains ever cleaned? McDonalds was everywhere, the syrup, soda everything was on the seat. Nasty. MTA is paying soo much for these cars and people act like if they can pay for it. They think it is a 1 dollar or something.

One time, when I took this M7 on Weekend from Flushing to Penn Station, I was about to use restroom, but this particular M7 had you-know-what filled up and I gave up and I went to seat far away from the restroom area.

Of course it's the M7's fault that the people that use it litter.

Its a combination of the riders attiutude towards the trains (a lot of ppl just don't care and throw garbage everywhere)and the MTA who don't have the trains cleaned frquently anyway.

Yes the M7's are dirty and yes the railroad needs to step up the pace with the cleaning, but.... (gee, where does refuse come from?)

when trains have short turn times sometimes its difficult to get to all the mess that PASSENGERS leave onboard.

I wonder when the average person gets home does he/she do the same things they do on trains;

Put dirty shoes where people sit and track unknown viruses with them because of this.

Throw trash all over floor and/or seats instead of throwing it in station receptacles when exiting. SLOBS.

Jam garbage down toilets rendering them "out of service".

Someone should visit your home and do the above things occasionally and see how these conditions sit with you.

The irony is that the conductor says keep your feet off the seats but when he sees people doing it (especially women-who can blame him?) he says nothing.
