The Muni “Golden” Seat

Serene Lusano

Artist Serene Lusano doodles on the bus and has identified the “golden seat” for people like her. This ideal seat is the “least visible to looky-loos” and has “less [sic] chances of ‘elbow disruption’ from fellow public transit riders.”

When I saw where Serene’s “golden seat” is, I realized that that actually is the seat I most prefer. What do you think is the best seat on the bus? (aside from “the one that’s not next to someone with body odor problems?”)

    LOL Omg.. someone actually took the time to do this. I was going to do a map analyzing each seat position on the bus and what they mean. They got this one spot on.

  • Judy! We would welcome (and die over) a map analyzing each seat position! Please do! 🙂

    I take this seat more often than not, but on BART!

    I’m old and I like the seat right behind the driver. On the hilly routes, when the bus brakes going downhill, I don’t slide forward. There is a nice wall to lean against when I’m tired. Because the front lights turn off when the doors close, I don’t have to have my phone’s screen turned up to full brightness to read e-books or email on it.
