The U.S. Government has released hazardous materials and live viruses and germs into subways for "test" in the past.
1966 U.S. Army dispenses Bacillus subtilis variant niger throughout the New York City subway system. More than a million civilians are exposed when army scientists drop lightbulbs filled with the bacteria onto ventilation grates. http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread59987/pg1

Subway airflow tests to prepare T for possible terror attacks
Homeland Security began a series of tests today at 20 MBTA stations to determine how airborne contaminants would spread in a terrorist attack on Boston's subway system.
Nontoxic gases and particulate matter, frequently used in air quality monitoring, will be released into the air at three underground MBTA stations. Samples will be taken at 20 other locations and on subway cars along the Red, Green, Orange, Blue and Silver lines. The goal is to measure how the gas spreads throughout tunnels and subway cars. "The gases we will be using are very safe," Lustig said.
Testing will be done on Monday during the evening rush hour. No testing is scheduled for Tuesday. On Wednesday and Thursday, testing will be done at morning rush hour. On Friday, testing will be done during the morning rush at South Station in the subway and MBTA commuter line area, officials said.
