  1. This sounds like something that the people at newmindspace might do. I’d like to see it here, once or twice at least.


  2. Didn’t Ikea do a commercial like this a while back? It’s pretty cool.

    On a similar note, I saw a streetcar with a Toronto FC full body wrap today. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen an full body ad wrap that I like. It’s really well done and it looks good on the car because it’s all red.

    Steve: Many streetcars have full body wraps and this has been going on for quite some time. Probably the most amusing part of this was the original versions where the car fronts were left red. Seems that the TTC worried that people wouldn’t know it was a streetcar if it wasn’t red. This idiocy appears to be behind us now.


  3. My personal opinion is that I don’t like this type of rehabbing, graffiti scribbling or any other impromptu art marking of transit vehicles. I think what transit users want is an extremely clean vehicle (inside and out), a vehicle that is as safe from crime as possible, vehicles that run often and on time. If there is money to be spent, spend it on education of these stupid arrogant goofs that stand in “active” doorways of the subway cars, simply because it’s convenient for them (I’m not referring to rush-hours when sardine mode is in effect), or the inconsiderate slobs that park their rear on one seat and place their bags, parcels etc on the seat beside them, then put their feet up on another. Then you have the ones that sit on the isle seat and one has to struggle to get by them for the window seat—and many times the same person is still sitting on the isle seat when the person vacates the window seat. I think time and money could be better spent on passenger education than making the inside of subway cars “cozy”!
