In order to promote daily physical exercise, the city of Cluj-Napoca, in Romania, has decided to set up a system allowing bus tickets not to be paid for. For this, you have to do squats.
20 squats in 2 minutes, this is now the price of a bus ticket to Cluj-Napoca, in northwestern Romania. On the occasion of SportsFestivalthis small town has set up a smart machine that aims to count the number of flexes performed by passengers.
If they reach the number indicated, they will then be entitled to a free bus ticket.
But this is not the first year that this initiative has been implemented. No, the festival in question is already in its third edition and is a real success in Romania.
The proof, in 2020 already, 55,000 bus tickets had been sold thanks to this little trick. So that was over a million squats, not bad, right?
