|"From the outside,
Muni Car #5148 looks just like any other,
a run-of-the-mill, white-and-orange 45-Union. A closer look reveals a dubious
distinction. Coach #5148 is the only bus in the entire fleet with carpeted
seats! If you're not at all phobic about germs it's fun to see the coach.
Driver Winston Chang says the carpeting is a source of discomfort for riders
in warm weather but is fine when it's cold - you know, in the summertime.
