Metro gets a cleaning~ Missing Paris Day

Paris' state-owned public transport operator RATP 
(Regie Autonome des Transports Parisiens) has announced,
the metro is about to get a cleaning.

Pierre Mongin, head of the RATP, has promised 70 million euros a year 
for the next five years for a major overhaul 
meant to clean up both the grime and the smell. 

I love the Paris metro no matter its condition,
though I know residents who won't ride it other than in an emergency.
But it would be nice to give it a better reputation than it has now. 

Can't wait to see the results!

I too love all the Metro stops and the old look, but a good cleaning is good. Thank you so much too Kirsten, for the bottle info. I will look it up. Don't think there is a Crate and Barrel in Tulsa.

Wow -- I didn't think it seemed that dirty in 2012! That's a great commitment. I love it.
