UPDATE: CTA has released a statement saying, “While providing more than 700,000 rail rides each day, CTA takes reported incidents of uncleanliness, including those regarding pests, very seriously. We have a rigorous process to maintain cleanliness on our system and our bus and trains are cleaned daily, both before and after each trip, and at the end of each day. Vehicles also receive thorough, deep cleanings on a regular basis that includes preventative treatment for pests.”
Can’t you just hear Samuel L. Jackson saying this?
“I Have Had With These Gosh-Darn Bedbugs On This Gol-Danged Train!” (That’s the clean version!)
A person riding the CTA Red Line claims to have seen a female passenger with a bag that was covered in bugs.
DNA Info reports that he thinks they were bedbugs.
They evacuated the train, which may have been a mistake.
Because the woman got off and probably got onto another train, with her little friends.
But remain calm; all is well. They have disinfected the train.
Although I think they’re too big to be bedbugs….
Besides, the last time this happened the bugs turned out to be lice, not bedbugs. So stop your lousy worrying!
