A bus for the homeless
Yesterday I came across a nicely decorated bus near Montparnasse. At first I thought it was some sort of advertising, but I had a closer look and found out it was dedicated to the homeless. It's called Le Bus Abri (the shelter bus), which is a play on words with Abri Bus, which is what we call our bus stops, and it's painted like an apartment building, because, precisely it's meant to be a little temporary house, if a homeless person wishes to find a shelter for an hour or a day. If I understood well what they say on their site, this bus is also a political claim.
