Each of these commuters is immersed in his own world. One common thing is that they all wait for the same metro train, then board an overloaded train coach standing, then part ways without them consciously knowing that each other exists.

They come and go: north-bound and south-bound metro trains meet while in transit. There is an urban legend I heard from the film Kiseki (2011) that the intense energy created by two trains passing by each other can grant the wishes of someone witnessing it. It is only possible for fast-travelling trains, the likes of a shinkansen, though.
