Here comes Big Red

Not sure how I feel about this :

With more riders flocking to the MBTA, the public transit agency has decided to experiment with making two Red Line cars roomier by removing most of their seats.

The modified cars, which will be dubbed “Big Red” cars, will be used on one of 28 six-car rush hour trains during the pilot program, which begins Monday. The program is modeled on similar efforts in San Francisco, Chicago, and New York City.
