Tired of finding someone’s disgusting gum on public transit? Try finding love instead!

One of the joys of editing The Source is that I get to read vast amounts of transportation-related stories on the Internet each week. While I think transpo is obviously an important topic, it can be a little…what’s the word…dry.

Thusly, my fave story of the week comes from Grist on this important subject: meeting boys and girls while riding mass transit. Attentive readers may recall that the winning video (see above) in last year’s Metro transit video contest tackled this topic.

Read the Grist piece. They offer some excellent pointers, including this one: carry an ambiguously shaped musical instrument case as a conversation starter. Nice.
