CURRENT GO GEORGE ROUTES FINALISED AND MAPPED

After several rounds of refinements to the routes that make up the first three phases of the GO GEORGE public transport system, a route map depicting the system as it currently stands, has now been finalised and will be put up in buses and included in communication and printed information about the service. 

“We could not spend money on printing and putting up any maps before reaching a certain level of stability on the routes rolled out to date,” says James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager. “With the map in the buses and timetables in hand, however, we knew all along that understanding the system and planning their trips would be so much easier for our passengers.  Although we always keep our ears on the ground for changing passenger needs, these routes should basically stay the same.”

According to Robb, the stability of the system now allows for several applications that will make using the system easier for passengers.  A handy pocket timetable guide is currently being printed, and routes and timetables will be put up on the pole collars at the bus stops. “We should start with the application of the relevant route map and timetable for every bus stop within the next week. We’ll start out with the transfer bus stops at first, and fill in the rest. This is a mammoth task since every bus stop’s map and timetables are unique,” he says.

The current routes cover Rosemoor, Loerie Park, Denneoord, Blanco, Heather Park, Heatherlands, Pacaltsdorp, the Garden Route Mall and the industrial area. Areas to be serviced by future routes include Thembalethu, Parkdene, Borcherds, Conville, Herolds Bay, Victoria Bay, Wilderness, Kleinkrantz, Touwsranten, Wilderness Heights and Hoekwil.

For any enquiries about the bus service or for assistance with trip planning, call the GO GEORGE Call Centre at 0800 044 044 where well-informed customer service agents are available from 05:00 – 21:30 daily. All route maps and timetables are also available on the GO GEORGE website, www.gogeorge.org.za.

 

HUIDIGE GO GEORGE-ROETES GEFINALISEER EN OP KAART

Na etlike rondtes verfynings van die roetes wat die eerste drie fases van die GO GEORGE-openbare vervoerstelsel uitmaak, is ‘n roetekaart van die stelsel soos dit tans daar uitsien, voltooi en sal dit in busse aangebring, en in kommunikasie en inligtingsmateriaal oor die busdiens gebruik word.

“Ons kon nie geld uitgee op drukwerk en die aanbring van kaarte voordat ‘n sekere vlak van stabiliteit op die roetes wat tot nou ontplooi is, bereik is nie,” sê James Robb, GO GEORGE-bestuurder. “Ons het wel die hele tyd geweet dat passasiers met  ʼn kaart op die busse en tydrooster in die hand, die stelsel beter sou verstaan en ritbeplanning baie makliker sou vind. Hoewel ons altyd ons ore op die grond hou vir veranderende passasiersbehoeftes, behoort hierdie roetes basies dieselfde te bly.”

Volgens Robb lei die stabiliteit van die stelsel nou tot verskeie toepassings wat dit makliker sal maak vir passasiers om die stelsel te gebruik.  ʼn Handige, sakgrootte tydroostergids is tans in die drukproses en roetekaarte en tydroosters gaan teen die pale by die bushaltes aangebring word. “Ons behoort binne die volgende week met die opplak van die toepaslike roetekaarte en tydroosters vir elke bushalte te begin. Ons sal eers net wegspring met die oorklimbushaltes, en dan die res invul. Dit is ‘n reuse-taak aangesien elke halte se kaart en skedules uniek is,” sê hy.

Die huidige roetes bedien Rosemoor, Loeriepark, Denneoord, Blanco, Heatherpark, Heatherlands, Pacaltsdorp, Garden Route Mall en die industriële gebied. Areas wat deur toekomstige roetes bedien sal word, sluit in Thembalethu, Parkdene, Borcherds, Conville, Heroldsbaai, Victoriabaai, Wildernis, Kleinkrantz, Touwsranten, Wildernishoogte en Hoekwil.

Vir enige navrae oor die busdiens of hulp met ritbeplanning, skakel die GO GEORGE-inbelsentrum by 0800 044 044 waar goed ingeligte agente daagliks van 05:00 – 21:30 beskikbaar is.  Alle roetekaarte en tydroosters is ook beskikbaar op die GO GEORGE-webblad, www.gogeorge.org.za.
