Do you feel Carpet can be Installed and Fixed in Local (Short distance) and Express trains (Long Distance) ?.

Do you feel Carpet can be Installed and Fixed in Local transport and Luxury Buses ?.

Can this give a Better Designing and Comfortable look and feel for the passengers travelling in Trains and Buses ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hello Prashant,
I am not able to speak to the technical part of your question. As to "look and feel" - depending on the carpet and design I'd say it could be an improvement but frankly it would probably require additional cleaning expense, and most likely people would not care so much. I think the expense makes it impractical relative to the ultimate effect. As you know, when carpet gets worn and dirty it looks worse than other materials that otherwise would be noticed less.
Others might have a different opinion.

Hope that helps
Barbara
