Rejected petition Offer free hand sanitisers on the TFL underground train stations.
I want action as TFL underground station resources in general contain a high amount of bacteria, which could cause the public to become ill.
Stand up with me and support the public. We pay for the TfL service so we should get what we pay for!
A news article published by the Evening Standard, research has shown that the Northern Line had three times the amount of germs than the next dirtiest tube line. Central line seats have also been reported of containing germs.
If that is not enough for action to be taken for hand sanitisers to be placed... Another article published by evening standards states "Nine of the world’s most dangerous superbugs are among a “hotbed of bacteria” on London’s Tube network, scientists have warned."
