Globe is bringing back the Love – and the Love Bus – this summer by launching a groundbreaking free transportation and activity service this coming Holy Week and the entire month of April. Globe prepaid subscribers (and even postpaid users) will be able to enjoy trips to the Philippines’ favorite summer destinations like La Union and Batangas, as well as being able to hop islands in Boracay/Caticlan with sponsored Globe Love Boats. If that’s not all, there will also be buses roaming Metro Manila the entire month ferrying mallgoers to their favorite shopping center of choice. Not only will the rides be completely free, anybody registered and riding these buses will also be able to join activities and games during the rides themselves – giving passengers a chance to win some cool freebies, prizes, and even cold, hard cash to spend during their chosen summer vacations.
The Globe Prepaid Love Bus, particularly styled in the same vein as the Love Buses that were popular in the 80’s, effectively brings back the feeling of going on vacations with the family. Though technically, this new iteration is called the Globe *143# Prepaid Bus – which you can see prominently displayed on its heart shaped design. The campaign is to promote the *143# hotline as a Globe prepaid user’s one-stop shop to simplify promo registrations and service inquiries without the need for memorizing keywords. Users need only to dial in *143# and press Send on their phones to be able to access the service, which in turn will come back as an easy to navigate menu for simplified use.
The Love Buses are scheduled to take passengers to La Union and Batangas on April 4 & 5 – with return trips happening on the 8th and 9th of April. (Food and lodging will be borne by the travelling parties though.) Manila-faring buses start on April 10 and will be available the entire month from 10AM to 7PM for mallgoers to enjoy. (Manila bus limited to ages 14-24 only.) For Globe users in the Boracay/Caticlan area, the Love Boats will be available to island-hop from April 13 through 15. (No registration needed for Globe’s Love Boats, just show up and catch a boat ride!)
To reserve a seat on these buses, all you have to do is go to Globe’s Facebook Fanpage here, and click on the Love Bus icon to launch its application. From there, you can pick and choose the right vacation schedule for you. An SMS will be sent to the Globe number you used when you registered and shall be used as the ticket to be shown when you board. Of course as previously mentioned, games, activities, and prizes will be given away during these trips – you can even win money to spend on the vacation you’ll be heading into, making your summer that much more enjoyable.
All Globe subscribers, postpaid or prepaid are welcome to register and join. There is no screening process involved and it will strictly be on a first-come, first-served basis. So don’t hesitate, sign up for a Globe Love Bus trip now!
