Remember folks....most of the NYC seats was just a long expanse. If you were wide you just took up more space. Chicago's 5000s are partitioned with little pads for you to sit on. Doesn't make any diffrence if you're wide or narrow, you sit on the same size pad. Plus many pads are hemmed in by the upright standee poles. There are only four traverse seatings but they are at the wheelchair locations.
