A new study by insurance company Netquote says the average TNC vehicle is 35,000 times more germy than a toilet seat.

Researchers compared transportation network company (TNC) cars, three taxis, and three rental cars, and found TNC cars have about 219 times as many germs as the average taxi.

The study found the worst areas for germs are window buttons and seat belts.
