Ads in Motion, Part III

The Manila Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 2 or the purple line that services passengers from Santolan to Recto stations is my go-to mode of transportation when I go to any point in Metro Manila. However, for almost a month my left heel made it difficult for me to go up and down three flights of stairs (elevators and escalators were not functional), and compounded by the stifling heat, taking the train took a backseat to hailing taxis or riding Uber.

This weekend, with my left heel improving, I braved the stairs and rode the train once again. Aside from one of the stations being conveniently close to where I live, part of the charm of LRT2 is the wrap ads that add colors to the otherwise plain and dirty train coaches. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that two wrap ads have called the LRT Line 2 trains their home during my absence. Some of the ads have made their way inside the train, but taking photos of those is more challenging without getting in the way of the packed-like-sardines riding public.

Here are some of the photos of LRT Line 2 train wrap ads:

The emojis make Pepsi’s wrap ad the cutest. It is also the perfect time to advertise this because summer = ice cold drink.
