MTA rules state no person "shall engage in any nontransit uses" on subway cars, including public speaking and campaigning. Violators could face fines of up to $125 in civil and criminal penalties, as pointed out by a Guardian contributor. 

During her ride, Clinton interacted with subway patrons while flanked by security and media. 

The MTA rule is in place to prevent performers and musicians, who often legally perform on subway platforms, from carrying their acts into the cars. 

Clinton's trip caught attention from the media when she struggled with a subway turnstile, swiping her card multiple times to get through.
