The wide seat is much wider than a regular seat. think of it as a "plus size seat". Its not the regular seat, the skinnier one is the regular one.
I call it the fat seat, but really its the "more personal space seat".
People seriously overweight to the point of requiring it (who also tend to be very uncommon on the streetcar network due to the level of active transportation required for regular use) will likely be too embarrassed to use the seat, and it will also become the most popular on the streetcar due to the increased personal space.

I call these the "Laurel & Hardy" seats.
What do you mean? The one on the right is a regular size seat, and the one on the left is extra-wide.or...one for parent and one for child? presumably there was limited space and this is what would fit there...one full size seat and one smaller one?

Here's a better perspectiv, from the mock-up I think:
The public will have its first chance to board the new streetcar during Doors Open Toronto on Sat. May 24, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the TTC’s Russell Division, 1433 Queen St. E.
The people who walk to pubic transit tend to be more fit. Obese people tend to drive more. Same happens to kids who are chauffeured everywhere by their parents, they tend to get obese.
Having never been on one, I was responding to someone who described the big one as a seat for a person and the small one as a seat for a bag. The comment made me think that the big one was regular sized and small one was smaller than regular sized (given the lack of perspective I don't even feel dumb for thinking that)....so I thought if they had to squeeze in a small seat that perhaps they were not thinking "we'll give someone a comfortable place for their bag" rather "a spot for a parent and child".....clearly that was stupid thing to say
No, no, no one was stupid. It was hard to tell how big the seats were from the angle of the first photo.
I have another question. Will the new cars still use a bell? Or will they have more of a horn? Has anyone heard them?

It will have the same sounding bell as the current streetcars, except that it will be played by speakers rather than mechanically.
We did already discuss them extensively earlier in this thread. Starting at http://urbantoronto.ca/forum/showth...ting-delivery-Bombardier)?p=684154#post684154No, no, no one was stupid. It was hard to tell how big the seats were from the angle of the first photo.
