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!
