As Roman Wanderer mentioned recently, Rome’s public transport network has
shot trundled into the 21st century with its new electronic bus-stops that give you second-by-second updated timetables, aided by GPS satellite tracking.
Example: Today strike. Next bus in 7.5 hours.
I caught this scab in flagrante delicto. Note the apposite name for the Rome public transport authority: ATAC.
What caught my attention more was the ad on the back of the bus. It’s pretty … revealing.
I’ve masked the name of the product, but see if you can guess what it is for.
