Metra designs comfortable new seats
The seats on Metra trains could be getting a makeover.
The rail agency unveiled sleeker modern seats Friday.
Unlike the current bench seats, these are more like airline seats. One big change is they cannot flip to face the direction the train is moving, but they do have cup holders.
They are supposed to be more comfortable with more neck and back support.
If approved, the seats would be installed on new trains and replace existing seats as needed.
