nothing would happen. it's the city, man. the air here sucks most of the time. if you want clean air move to the suburbs. sadly that's how it
the cars and trucks are worse. at least the buses are being switched to those new "clean air" ones.
i'm not a chemist so i can't really tell you what's going on there, but you do have to remember the subway tunnels were dug many many decades ago.
as a side note ridership would not decrease even if you told people there was tear gas down there. it's the only way to get anywhere at least in
manhattan. there's no parking anywhere so driving's out. the busses take an hour and half to cross town (avg. speed calculated at a whopping 3mph)
and cabs sit in traffic and charge you 20 bucks to go 4 or 5 miles. the train will always be the main way to go for us. i hope they're more
environmentally careful when building the 2nd ave line shortly.
