The American Seating InSight is a plastic transit seat manufactured by American Seating. It was introduced in 2006 with the Chicago Transit Authority as the launch customer. The InSight boasts the industry’s largest personal sitting area.

The seat is designed to be lightweight and have a slim profile. It is injection-molded from glass-reinforced nylon and is anchored with an extruded aluminium base and cantilever. The InSight is available in either a 17-inch or 18-inch width. Unlike the 18-inch width, the 17-nch width is not available with a grip rail and does not have sides that flare outwards. It is typically used for perimeter arrangements. A stainless steel backing is optional as is a fully upholstered extension of the back on the 18-inch width.

The InSight may feature the EZ fold system with A.R.M. Securement System to accommodate passengers utilizing mobility aids. A barrier which shares the same design language is usually specified to separate the wheelchair area from the transverse seats.
