BART Considers Cleaner, but Less Comfortable Seats

We all know how utterly disgusting a trip on BART is — the seats are coated in years of grease and grime and the carpet is as sanitary as a Porta Potti.

But alas, BART trains are nearing the end of their life expectancy, and the transit agency will need to begin replacing 700 cars soon, the Examiner reports today.
With new cars come new seats!

BART officials are already testing out some possibilities, which include everything from less comfortable, but much easier-to-clean seating to vinyl covering that is sure to be sticky in the hotter summer months.
