Metro snippets

Metro Esasegagasini, which accompanied The Mercury on October 3, 2008, reported, amongst other things, that:

* A streamlined public transport system which would allow commuters to travel on trains, buses, and taxis on one ticket. There were plenty of comments from politicians but little detail and no dates. One assumes that this would have to happen before the soccer fans arrive in 2010.

* A time capsule has been sealed at the Natural Science Museum and is due to be opened in two stages in 2058 and 2108. It contains an ipod, a cellphone, DVDs and messages from children of today to the children of those eras. From my other research, there is also a capsule built into the foundation of the Millennium Tower. That one contains a brassiere, if memory serves me correctly.
