“Free rides! Yay!” Exactly my thought when I was invited to experience the pilot ride of the Globe Lovebus. It’s Globe’s way of giving back the love by letting all of us experience hassle-free (and you bet, MORE FUN!!!) riding, much like their newest prepaid promo *143#.
The Globe Lovebus traverses the busy road of EDSA, pit-stopping at your favorite malls in the Metro. The route starts from Trinoma and ends in MOA and vice versa. From a commuter perspective, this is really a relief, because getting a bus (and getting bored by all their movies) in EDSA is a pain in the ass. The long ride is no longer a problem too, since Globe gives you a one-of-a-kind bus ride experience with a number of in-ride activities like games with actual prizes (I see some eyes glimmer! *wink*)
So how does one gets in the Lovebus? Here’s some easy steps:
1. Register through Globe’s Facebook account.
2. Book your ride, along with your name, prepaid number, and some friends’ names (more utash more fun!)
3. Wait for a confirmation SMS to be sent to you mobile number.
4. Go to your scheduled ride, and show the SMS that acts as your ticket.
5. Hop on the bus, and enjoy the ride!!!
But the fun doesn’t stop there, the Lovebus also has provincial legs in Batangas and La Union this coming Holy Week! Trips to the provinces will be on April 4 and 5, with return trips on April 8 and 9. And if you plan on visiting one of the recently announced top beaches in the world – Boracay, just show your Globe-powered mobile phone or Tattoo stick and ride the Globe Loveboat to and from Boracay island on April 13 – 15! Buses in Metro Manila will commence trips on April 10 and will run for an entire month from Monday to Saturday, 10am – 7pm.
And to keep you connected this summer, you don’t need to remember numbers, keywords, or codes. All you need to remember is *143# to avail of Globe’s latest prepaid promos! All promos are now centralized on this promo, so that it’s easier and quicker to register for Globe promos. Like UNLIALLTRIO which gives you unlimited call, text, and surfing! When will this be available on postpaid? I need eeeeet so bad!
