The Bay Area Rapid Transit is proposing to change the systems seats to bright green and blue — just like the Seattle Seahawks colors. One San Francisco fan has started a petition against the change.

The new seats will be bright green and blue - just like the Seattle Seahawks. One San Francisco fan has collected some 2,000 signatures on a petition protesting seats the colors of the 49ers arch rival. And surely it's just a coincidence, since the general manager of BART was previously the director of Seattle's Department of Transportation. It's MORNING EDITION.
