The MTA will play Cupid on Valentine's Day by hosting a speed dating event on the Red Line.
Officials with the L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority say the event will take place between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and that to participate, Metro commuters must register and be 18 or older with a valid ID. They also will be asked to sign a waiver and wear an event wristband.
Officials say a car at the front or end of every Red Line train will be decorated with hearts. Inside those cars, officials say, a Metro staff employee wearing a safety vest will facilitate the speed dating event.
Those searching for love will have the opportunity to pick a seat, move around and search for Mr. or Ms. Right.
Officials hope people will hop on the love train Friday or otherwise consider public transportation while celebrating Valentine's Day.
