I know it's hot out but the stench on the El cars, especially on the commute home, is horrible. The minute the doors open and you walk in off of a sweltering hot platform, it hits you right in the face. It smells like a huge hamper full of dirty laundry, even with the A/C!
How about some air freshener? Remember those stick-up air fresheners? How about placing some of them under some of the seats or on the ceiling in each car? Or, how about thoroughly cleaning the cars on a regular basis? Newsflash--those guys picking up trash and litter every morning doesn't constitute cleaning.
Ridership is up so SEPTA should vamp up cleaning and maintenance.
