I was on the bus thsi morning and saw a girl  carefully laying out takeout breakfast on the seats next to him—napkin in lap and everything. Might've been tasty, but not a pleasant traveling experience for the rest of us there.
What's your take: do you mind seeing people eating on a sandwich on the bus or a commuter train? Should a no-food rule be enforced?

It depends on the food...I hate it when people eat a Döner Kebap on the tram for example. Garlic smell everywhere...

Ban it. People are slobs and leave messes everywhere they go. Did you know in China, people don't even clean up their trays when they are done eating? Say for example you go into a fast food joint. You look for a table to sit down and eat, half the tables still have empty trays from lazy pricks who didn't even bother to find the trash can!!!!
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!

Xiamen imposes new public rule: No eating or drinking on buses!

Much to the relief of those who find it intolerable to watch, smell, and hear other people eat or drink on public transport, the city of Xiamen has begun a pilot project banning eating and drinking on No. 51 buses since April of last year.
Commuters on No. 51 buses, a busy bus line between Lundu Ferry Terminal and Xiamen International Cruise Center, are reminded of the new rule by drivers and clearly visible signs onboard.
After the trial period of about a year, all No. 51 buses have removed the garbage baskets in their carriages. According to bus drivers, the new “civilized” behavior on buses has helped to form good habits for most passengers and the bus carriages have been kept tidier.

The new rule banning eating and drinking on buses is expected to be upheld on buses numbered 52, 快3, 18 and 102 this year, covering areas including the Xiamen International Conference and Exhibition Center, Xiamen Railway Station, Xiamen North Railway Station, No. 1 Port Bus Station, Wucun Long-distance Bus Station, and Fanghu Long-distance Bus Station.

Many drivers on “No Eating or Drinking” buses will advise passengers to finish their food or drinks before getting on buses, according to the Xiamen Public Transport Group.
Twentyfive percent out of nothing is still nothing!
