30 Awkward Public Transportation Pictures

Some elitists spend their days safe in fancy private cars, completely oblivious to the crazy people on public transportation. Sure, they’ve never been yelled at by a hallucinating homeless person or peed on by a drunken college student, but the joke’s on them. Because they can only know the majesty of sharing a ride with your fellow humans through these photos of people on the subway.

Through these awkward subway pictures, you’ll learn the time honored traditions of communal transport. For instance, never sit next to a rider who’s got his hand down his pants (or an actual snake in his hands). And make sure to avoid nipple-ring flaunting grandpa in the back.
