If you want to find love in a hopeless place, like say the train, you might want to take a look at what’s going on in Prague. The Czech Republic’s capital city is setting up a new system in which the railroad will provide special cars for singles to mingle.
It makes some sense. After all, commuting can take up a huge chunk of people’s lives, leaving less opportunities to cruise for a companion. And if nothing else, train riders are a very captive audience. Here’s how the Atlantic Cities describes the idea:
Mooted for later this year, the idea is to set aside one car per train (probably the last one) for single people for a fixed period each week (though apparently you wouldn’t have to be single to get on). According to Prague transit spokesman Filip Drápal, the plan is designed to help time-poor singles lacking opportunities to meet others. He commented in Czech weekly Týden that, “People today have no place to meet … Here they have the opportunity.”
That got us thinking. What would this look like here in Southwestern Connecticut? And which stations would offer single riders the best chances at love? Well, we did some digging, thanks to data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, to provide you with that answer right here.
What do you think? Would you board a singles car?
