I hope they've changed the upholstery. Even a flat color would do after the awfulness of that pattern in the old cars.

awesome color i hope they have a stop requestor similar to trimet buses. its stupid how the streetcar driver can't go if someone is accidently leaning on that stupid yellow strip. and its always some kid with headphones on so he doesn't hear the car driver's announcement. has this happened to anyone else?

^^^ No, but that's funny.

I'm ready for a pink and black Oregon-made streetcar. That would be hot shit.

^no joke. it would be awesome if every streetcar had a different color, actually it should be lit up and as it changes districts it will change colors. red=chinatown, green=west end etc. probably impossible but it would be cool.
and i just watched the video on kgw.com and it looks like the seats are the same. the seats should match the streetcar color!

not really but these apple green cars are the same color that fire engines were painted 25 years ago when they thought people would see them better at night.

In the video, Sam Adams also said that the colors of future streetcars will be even wilder, so maybe a pink and black train isn't out of the question

Yellow is one of the new colors, I saw pics of the apple green/yellow combo a few months back. It was being tested in the Czech Rep.

I just want quadrouple-articulated cars. Riding the streetcar from SOWA to PSU today at 3pm was standing room only. =P
