According to a new column in The New York Times, the interior of a NYC subway car is cleaned by hand — and it takes one person over three and a half hours to do it. 47-year-old worker Corey Skinner, who was profiled in the article, says the cleanings are done every eight to ten weeks, and the cars are cleaned overnight. According to the latest data available on the MTA website, it's estimated that New York City subways get about 5.6 million riders on a typical weekday. Despite the subway's growing pains, global consultancy Arcadis still ranks New York City's public transit the best in North America.
