San Francisco’s Bay Area Rapid Transit system is set to receive new trains, but their is only one problem: BART’s new seats are colored neon green and blue, which also happens to be the team colors of the 49ers’ arch-rival, Seattle. In an attempt to change BART’s new Seahawks-inspired design, fans have submitted a petition on Change.org.
The Seattle Seahawks are the chief rivals of the San Francisco 49ers. To outfit BART car seats in the team colors of the Seattle Seahawks (i.e. neon green and blue) is an outrage and a slap in the face of every San Francisco 49ers fan who rides BART. We call upon BART General Manager Grace Crunican (who oddly enough worked as Director of the Seattle Department of Transportation prior to joining BART) to scrap plans to adorn BART car seats in neon green and blue and instead choose other colors.
As of writing, the petition had received 681 signatures; just 381 more are needed to potentially start the change of the future of BART’s design.
This is just another example of why rivalries truly know no bounds.
