Prague metro’s cars for singles plan deemed a failure

The Prague metro’s special meeting train cars, meant for people looking for friends or partners, was not deemed a big success by most media outlets on the first weekend of the project. Most journalists who tried out the special cars on the A line said that the project was badly advertised and the cars were not marked, so most people did not know about their significance. Additionally, the a large percentage of people taking the A line, especially over the weekend, are tourists. Earlier, the transit authority, which refers to the cars as “communication carriages”, has backed down on its original plan to designate the carriages strictly for people looking for new partners.
