Valentine's Day speed dating set for Los Angeles trolley

Feb. 12, 2014 at 3:58 PM

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Los Angeles residents will have a shot at finding love on the Red Line on Valentine's Day with a speed dating session aboard a trolley, transit officials said.

Trolley cars will be decorated for Valentine's Day on Friday and designated "Speed Dating Cars" where Southern California strap-hangers can get to know one another while be whisked between downtown's Union Station and Hollywood.

Riders taking part in the lunch-hour event will be wearing special buttons and wristbands identifying them as being in the market for a relationship that comes with a good story for when they are asked "how did you two meet?"

The Metropolitan Transit Authority said in a written statement that it would have costumed "Metro Cupids" on board to help with the fast-paced mingling.
