Mobile provider bmobile has extended its line of branded buses to the sister isle of Tobago. The bus went into service just in time for the recent Tobago Jazz experience.  Bmobile commissioned two similar branded buses in Trinidad last November. The ‘Imagine Next’ Keshorn Walcott branded bus is a welcomed addition to the fleet for the benefit of Tobago’s commuting public.

The network partnered with the Public Transport Service Corporation (PTSC) to support the executive coach buses run by the transport organization. The buses bear bmobile’s unique “4G, but not just 4G” catchphrase featuring Keshorn Walcott, the Olympic Gold Medal winner in javelin at the 2012 Olympic games.

Assistant Deputy General Manager of PTSC Tobago Operations,Mr. Henry Cook said “the bus would be operating from Scarborough to Bacolet via Frenchfield Road, and would make one trip every hour between the hours of 6am and 6pm.  The new addition to the PTSC fleet he said is the first of its kind where the branding of the bus was actually done in Tobago.”

Onica Blackman, Manager, Enterprise Marketing and Communication - Tobago Operations expressed bmobile’s pleasure in making this timely addition to the Tobago landscape at a time when Tobago and bmobile were preparing for the Jazz festival which saw an upsurge in commuters on the island.

PTSC’s executive coach buses provide commuters with a modern, comfortable convenient transit service. bmobile’s sponsorship of the wrapped buses extends the visual aesthetics of the buses and helps reduce maintenance costs.

The wrapping of the bus builds on bmobile’s ongoing collaboration with PTSC to support the corporation's modernization thrust. In Tobago bmobile has installed bzones in strategic places including Pigeon Point, Store Bay, Lowlands Mall and the Ferry terminal in Tobago, so that commuters and pedestrians alike can benefit from the service and they go about their daily routines, for work or leisure.
