Natural Fiber a No Go For New BART Seats

"With all due respect to our staff, what our passengers see when they board our trains are these nasty seats," BART board Joel Keller said. "These seats have long since outlived their usefulness." In with that we find out that new vinyl covers will replace the disgusting, horrible wool upholstered seats in 100 of BART's train cars. If the general pubic respond positively to the vinyl, BART will move to replace the seats in 100 more cars the following year. [SF Examiner/photo via Stuart Dixon]
