GO GEORGE BUS DRIVER STRIKE

TEMPORARY DRIVERS BROUGHT IN

 

Although the GO GEORGE bus service remains compromised due to the illegal bus drivers’ strike since yesterday, 8 September 2016, George Link has informed GO GEORGE that they are in the process of sourcing temporary drivers and that the number of active buses has been increased to 16 now. The first group of drivers has been appointed this morning and another group is expected to be appointed this afternoon.The challenge is to find qualified, licensed drivers who know the routes and have the necessary product certification. George Link is requesting drivers with a valid Code 10 or 14 license and a Public Drivers' Permit (PDP) to transport passengers, to phone them on 044 873 4803.

Routes 1A - Harmony Park; 1B - New Dawn Park; 60 - Rosedale/Syferfontein; 2 - Blanco; 7 -Garden Route Mall/CBD; 14 - Pacaltsdorp/Industrial (peaktime only) and 53 - Rosemore are being serviced.

Take note, however, that due to the limited service, the normal schedules will not apply. GO GEORGE endeavours to service the busiest routes and thereby assist as many passengers as possible. Route 14 will only run during peaktime. As capacity is limited, we would like to encourage passengers who can arrange alternative transport, to do so until normal service resumes.

While George Link remains committed to resolve the issue, GO GEORGE once again apologises to all passengers and the community for this serious disruption and inconvenience, and welcomes George Link's emergency measures.

STAKING DEUR BUSBESTUURDERS: TYDELIKE BESTUURDERS INGEBRING

Hoewel die GO GEORGE-busdiens steeds ontwrig word deur die onwettige busbestuurderstaking sedert gister, 8 September 2016, het George Link GO GEORGE ingelig dat hulle besig is om tydelike bestuurders te werf en dat die aantal busse verhoog is na 16. Die eerste groep tydelike bestuurders is reeds aangestel en nog 'n groep sal na verwagting vanmiddag aangestel word. Die uitdaging is om gekwalifiseerde, gelisensieerde bestuurders te vind wat die roetes ken en oor die vereiste produksertifisering beskik. George Link versoek bestuurders wat beskik oor 'n Kode 10- of 14-lisensie en 'n geldige professionele bestuurspermit (PDP) om passasiers te vervoer, om hulle te skakel by 044 873 4803.

Roetes 1A - Harmony Park; 1B - New Dawn Park; 60 - Rosedale/Syferfontein; 2 - Blanco; 7 - Garden Route Mall/CBD; 14 - Pacaltsdorp/Industrial (slegs tydens spitstye) and 53 - Rosemore word tans gediens.

Weens die beperkte diens sal die normale skedules nie gevolg kan word nie. GO GEORGE poog om die besigste roetes te diens en sodoende soveel moontlik passasiers te vervoer. Roete 14 word net tydens spitstye bedien. Aangesien kapasiteit beperk is, moedig ons graag passasiers wat alternatiewe vervoerreëlings kan tref, aan om dit te doen totdat normale diens hervat word.

Terwyl George Link hom daarop toespits om die kwessie op te los, maak GO GEORGE weereens verskoning teenoor alle passasiers en die gemeenskap vir hierdie ernstige ontwrigting en ongerief, en verwelkom George Link se noodmaatreëls.
