VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:)

THE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM In PRAGUE wants to take riders on a new kind of journey.

THE METRO SYSTEM PLANS TO INTRODUCE A LOVE TRAIN--AS IT'S BEEN CALLED.

EACH TRAIN WOULD HAVE A DESIGNATED CAR FOR SINGLE PEOPLE only to RUN DURING OFF-PEAK HOURS.

(Nat Pop)

THE SPOKESPERSON FOR PRAGUE INTEGRATED TRANSPORT SAYS they WANT TO OFFER commuters THE OPTION OF MEETING PEOPLE--SPENDING TIME TOGETHER--AND possibly TURNING A SINGLE RIDE INTO something more meaningful -- AT NO ADDITIONAL COST.

A ROMANCE RIDE WOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE REGULAR METRO FARE OF $1.25.

RIDERS SAY THEY HAVE THEIR DOUBTS ABOUT This love connection.

(Nat Pop)

THIS MAN SAYS HE DOESN'T THINK IT'S A BAD IDEA, BUT HE WOULDN'T USE IT.

STILL IF THE LOVE TRAIN GETS FINAL APPROVAL -- IT COULD BE AVAILABLE this fall.
