Look at the New Sanitary BART Seats

Posted By on Tue, Apr 24, 2012 at 2:13 PM

One thing that unequivocally unites city denizens with East Bay folk is their absolute disgust with BART seats and flooring. Which is why we thought it was safe to say that most everyone -- barring those adults who still are not potty trained -- were stoked to learn that BART was rolling out its new, easier-to-clean vinyl seating that won't soak up your bodily fluids.

The transit agency recently swapped out those despised fecal-stained wool cushions on 100 train cars and added these sleek seats to let riders get a feel -- literally -- for the new cushions. If you haven't had a chance to try them out, Vic Wong of Mission Mission snapped this shot of the sanitary seating arrangements.

Don't forget, you have until May 2 to fill out a survey, letting BART know how the new seats feel.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
