B)On the treadmill at a fitness centre.

No one has been able to catch the other "lizards" in the government so far though, hardy har har.

What new service are transport officials planning to implement on Prague's underground trains?
A)DJs spinning in each carriage to entertain commuters.
B)A rooftop pool so passengers can enjoy the city's sights.
C)Personal TVs in each seat showing the latest releases.
D)Special train cars geared exclusively towards singles looking to meet a mate. Ropid, the transport company that operates the Czech capital's trains, came up with the idea of dating carriages to encourage more people to take public transportation. While the details of the scheme are still being worked out, Ropid spokesman Filip Drapal told British newspaper the Daily Telegraph, "In the metro you can already read and learn, so why not find a partner? We want to make life more pleasant. People today have no time to meet." Officials are conducting surveys to gauge commuter interest, and the love train is expected to commence at the end of the year.
