About those seat ‘butt holes’ on Muni

Muni rider Judy asks the burning question …

Ever since I was a kid.. growing up in SF and riding Muni was the thing to do. However, I always wondered about those silver holes on the base of the seats of every bus. What exactly are they for!? Draining water? In case kids pee? What?!

Not all buses have them, of course. But with all the wet weather as of late, we’re left wondering the same thing. If they are in fact drainage holes, many of them don’t do their job (insert requisite joke about Muni employees here).

What do you think those little holes are for?
