This is an ad I've been seeing lately on the buses around the city, and every time I see it I just have one of those "ask yourself why" moments.
Can you read it? Wait, let me get closer for you:
Don't worry, I wasn't driving when I took this...I was in the passenger's seat.
Anyhoo, so, the title of the poster is: "FREE PUBLIC TRANSPORT"
And I'm thinking... woo hoo! 'Bout time!
Wait, what's that you say?
"Annual transport pass for Rome residents over the age of 70, with income up to €15,000 per year."
Ok, now, I'm not trying to make fun. Well, not much. It's just that, how many people age 71 and over still ride Rome's notoriously bad public transport system? Not many, I'm hoping. But, for those who are still out there, clutching their handbags for dear life and being thrown about like produce on the back of a truck: May God bless 'em!
