Just wondering, isn't there a certain limit to how many people can get
into a carriage. Surely like any moving vehicle, it would have a max
number of people allowed to occupied it. Taking the central line for
nearly 1 1/2 years now to work every day, I have come across numerous
lovely occasions where its just too much and there are way too many
people in there (with of course more people pushing to get in at every
stop). Just wondering if there's any sort of policy w/ regards to
being sardines, because from what I gather its always been "as many as
we can fit in"
