Catching the love bus

RESIDENTS could be catching the love bus and the love bug thanks to a Valentine's Day scheme.

Love At First Sight cards will be available on all First services from Sunday (February 10) in a bid to get shy passengers communicating with each other and even forming new relationships.

Commuters can pick up the cards when they board and fill in their details in the space provided, handing them to another passenger they recognise or even someone new.

Anyone who does start a relationships through the scheme, which runs until March 10, can fill in an online questionnaire at www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/worcestershire_herefordshire for a chance to win a meal for two at a restaurant of their choice.

A spokesman said: "The idea came from First staff and customers who have been in contact to say that they met their current partners on board."
