49ers' fans unhappy: New BART trains bear Seahawks colors
San Francisco is soon getting new trains for the region's Bay Area Rapid Transit system, but some 49ers fans are not pleased that the trains' interiors are decked out in Seattle Seahawks colors.
The seats inside the new trains are green and blue.
While the majority of San Franciscans probably don't care about the color scheme, the Seahawks semblance hasn't gone unnoticed. Someone even started a Change.org petition for the BART authority to change the seats to different colors:
As of 10:15 a.m. Saturday, just more than 85 people had signed the online petition.
The new trains are not yet in service and aren't scheduled to be in use until after testing in 2017. In the meantime, Bay Area residents will have plenty of chances to complain about the Seahawks colors at a series of public viewings.
