Love at FIRST sight! Cupid takes aim at bus passengers

Gazette: Love at FIRST sight! Cupid takes aim at bus passengers Love at FIRST sight! Cupid takes aim at bus passengers

Passengers are being encouraged to strike up relationships with fellow bus users this Valentines Day.

From Sunday, February 10, First Essex bus passengers will be handed a Love at First Sight card when boarding which they can trade with a stranger.

Those who form new relationships can log online for a chance to win a meal-for-two at a restaurant of their choice.

I think First should concentrate on getting their bus services running on time rather than waste money on this and also I dont think many of their drivers would get any cards given their clear lack of customer service training

Wouldn't have thought that was the safest way to meet somebody but hey sure the bus company has thought of this and all the safety implications (or not!)

Great idea, captures something of the bygone, romantic days of travel - why not do the same on the trains?
