49ers fan started a petition for BART


San Francisco will be receiving new trains for the region’s Bay Area Rapid Transit system, but some San Francisco 49ers fans are not happy that the trains’ interiors are decked out in Seattle Seahawks colors.

The seats inside the new train will be green and blue.

Majority of San Franciscans probably don’t care about the color scheme, but the Seahawks semblance hasn’t gone unnoticed. A Niners fan even started a Change.org petition for the BART authority to change the seats to different colors:

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. I 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 10:15 a.m. Saturday, just more than 85 people had signed the online petition. The new trains are not in service yet, and they are not scheduled to be in use until after testing in 2017. In the meantime, Bay Area residents will have many opportunities to complain about the Seahawks colors at a series of public viewings.

    BUTTHURT just hit a new level. We’re talking about seats on a train, you sensitive little girls, like wow. You poor poor people.

  • RegisHawk

    SF doesn’t have a team any more, so they shouldn’t be upset at all. Now if the buses in Santa Clara change their colors…

    • Douglas Totten

      Thanks for that, RegisHawk. San Francisco still will benefit from the 49ers hosting Super Bowl L however.
