Flip-Seats Actually Intended To Make You Stand!

The M.T.A is planning on implementing "flip-up" seats for our crazy packed rush-hour subways. Following the success of Tokyo's overcrowding control, experts say up to 18% more people can fit into the packed cars if the seats were flipped up, but what if we want to sit? I am still quite confused about the logic, will everyone actually sacrifice their seats to make more room for people to come onto the already packed train? I think not! They are planning to only have a few train cars out of the chain to have these flip-seats, let's just see how this works.
Hey M.T.A, if you are reading this, just ADD more trains and improve traffic control!

This is what I think when I hear Flip Seats!
