However slowly, BART unveils new, cleaner train seats

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

BART unveiled those new, easier-to-clean Vinyl seats on four train cars yesterday. They’ll be in 100 train cars by the end of the month, says Zusha Elinson at The Bay Citizen. The time-lapse video demonstrates a car makeover in about 45 seconds.

Add: Dirty cloth seats have been with us for years, but they were put in the spotlight last year after TBC found drug-resistant fecal and skin-borne bacteria, along with mold, to be common in the fabric.
