First as a proud geezer about to turn 70, I could care less about the seat cushion colors. Stigmatized??? no, more than someone carrying a white cane. As to the highly useful vertical handholds, just one of the advantages is they are useful to riders of all heights unlike ceiling mounted handgrabs. When I travel with a friend who uses a chair, this means I have something to hold on to while standing next to her. Given the noise factor, conversation is a joke; particularly in the transbay tube, I refuse to enter the few v many argument. WE ALL benefit when mass public transit works well for everyone. Perfection is a goal rarely achieved.
