Hot Stuff: Lend a Hand in Decongesting Traffic by Joining the #PoolSquad

We bet most of you feel like this every time you get stuck in traffic:


But what if, instead of complaining and complaining, why don't we get involved in decongesting traffic?

This is the goal of ride-hailing app Uber’s #PoolSquad campaign, where three squads will be competing against one another on who can get the most number of cars off the roads of Metro Manila by using UberPOOL.

The campaign, which will start on August 15, will ask users to enter any of the three promo codes (which are Movemanila, Changemanila, and Impactmanila) to join the contest. In case you are wondering which celebrities are part of the Move Squad, Change Squad, and Impact Squad, here’s the list:


With a star-studded lineup for each squad, it’s definitely going to be a challenge for users to select the squad they want to support. Free Uber rides and credits await the winning squad and top riders, but everyone who joins gets the best reward of all: The chance to make a difference in alleviating Manila's traffic woes.

Let the decongestion games begin!
