Cosying up to Strangers

Taking the bus is a reality for lots of people in this city. But do we have to sit almost on top of each other?! I've taken transit in Mexico, the US and France and I've never been as close to my fellow passengers as I am on Metro Transit. Even on a subway in France, with standing room only, people are cognizant to try and avoid toughing each other. Here I get a weird look if I try to scoot out of the way of the 300lb lady trying to squeeze in between me and the guy a seat away. I don't want to cuddle at 6am and I don't want your cigarette smell on me for the remainder of the day. Is a centimeter of personal space too much to ask? —personal space pls
