Danish love seatsKadaver off the Record

Copenhagen’s buses are introducing another way of getting around while you get around town: “love seats,” or “kærlighedssæder.” (Gesundheit!) A social experiment of Danish bus company, Arriva, these special spots aim to make things a little cozier for those would-be cuddlers who haven’t been feeling the love on public transit.

“You can sit here either if you want to signal to your fellow passengers that you’re single or if you feel in a very good mood,” Marianne Faerch of Arriva said.
