ALBANY – As part of its ongoing efforts to deliver “more love” to its bus system, the Capital District Transportation Authority has announced a partnership with dating site match.com that should bring “major hook ups” to its buses this Valentine’s Day.
CDTA spokesman Clem Ploppydimple announced the plan on Monday, adding that match.com has agreed to stock city buses with “willing divorcees and other singles” eager to hook-up with the regular bus folk.
“This is going to be tremendous,” Ploppydimple stated. “Most people ride our busses without ever interacting with their fellow bus riders, let alone finding love. So we figure introducing a bunch of aggressive, horny singles to the mix should solve that problem immediately.
“And what better day to do it than Valentine’s Day?” he added.
The announcement is part of CDTA’s plan to bring more love to the daily commute, and comes on the heels of the decision to install “love toilets” on the entire fleet this past fall.
“Love toilets were a good first step,” Ploppydimple noted. “But there is plenty more we can be doing. This partnership with match.com is the logical next step. It was a no-brainer.”
In a statement, match.com noted: “We are very excited to team-up with Albany’s bus system this Valentine’s Day. We have thousands of insatiably horny users throughout the Capital District, and we believe this will be a win-win situation for everyone.”
CDTA is reportedly also working on plans to introduce “Threesome Thursdays” and “Swinger Saturdays,” but Ploppydimple declined to elaborate, noting those ideas were “still only in the testing stages.”
"For now, let's just focus on Valentine's Day," he said. "Let's just focus on love."
