BART riders from the bay area seem to be a bit unhappy. The organization has been using fabric seats within its train cars to make riding the train more comfortable. The problem? Cutbacks mean smaller cleaning crews and they simply can’t keep up with the grime – not to mention the fact that those who do have jobs have a high absentee rate.
When the cars are eventually updated, they’ll include a better soundproofing base as well as new seat covers. We’ll just have to wait and see if BART gets its act together before the next fiscal budget is passed.
