Humans aren’t the only creatures moving on the public transport network. Bacteria are also riding the city’s roads and rails. Which raises the question: what bacterial passenger did you pick up when you grabbed the handrail this morning?
The short answer is we don’t know. But we could soon find out.
An international consortium of scientists and volunteers led by researchers in America are in the process of developing a snapshot of the bacteria found aboard a city’s public transport network.
Follow the research.
