Ride the Love Train With New ‘Singles-Only’ Subway Car
Tired of looking for love at the local singles bar or Match.com? Soon you may have a new option—the subway.
The company that operates the subway system in the Czech capital of Prague is considering offering singles-only subway cars that would give single commuters the chance to mingle while they make their way around the city.
A company spokesperson said they would start surveying passengers about the idea of singles-only cars and, if it proves popular, they could be rolling down the tracks as soon as the end of the year. “We want to emphasize that public transport is not only a means of travel,” he said, “but that you can do things there that you cannot do in your car.”
Prague is home to approximately 1.2 million people and attracts more than 5 million foreign visitors annually, making the subway system one of Europe’s most frequently used with more than 580 million passengers annually. It features 57 stations and runs 20 hours per day. Forty percent of Prague residents use it as their primary means of transportation, but the city is hoping to increase that figure by offering new incentives to lure people out of their cars.
So if you’re ever in Prague, the city subway system could help you find the love of your life. But you’re on your own for learning how to translate your cheesy pickup lines into Czech.
