The Straphangers Campaign rider-advocacy group released a report Wednesday that looked at conditions on 862 subway station platforms over the summer.
Surveyors scouted for overflowing garbage cans on platforms, rats, graffiti, peeling paint and missing tiles, among other conditions.
They found that 82 percent of underground platforms had significant water damage and 74 percent needed a fresh paint job, according to the report.
