GO GEORGE empowers learners to plan best route

GO GEORGE has been visiting schools all over town over the past month to assist learners who use the bus service with route planning.

School children are an important component of passengersusing the GO GEORGE bus service daily, with more than 600 of them taking the bus to school. Although they thoroughly know their way to school by now, the communications team of the bus service realised that the learners might not be aware of the different options available to them, and embarked on an extensive route planning campaign.

“We saw learners waiting at bus stops,hoping to get onto a bus that’s already full, while another more convenient route is available,” says James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager. “Coming from a background of using taxis or school buses that travel on one route only, they did not realise they now have a choice, and that the network of routes gives them several options.”

At first, a survey was conducted to establish how many learners in each school use the bus service, and from which areas they travel to school. A unique map depicting the different options available to school and back home was then created for each school and handed out and discussed with the young passengers during a follow-up visit.

Caption: Some George High learners from Pacaltsdorp did not realise that they could also take the Pacaltsdorp – Garden Route Mall bus (Route 12) to transfer to a Rosemoor bus at the Mall. These three young ladies all live in Pacaltsdorp and are going to test this option. They are, from left, Meagan Rondganger, Chanal-Lee Titus and Jenny-lee Samuels.

 

GO GEORGE bemagtig leerders om beste roete te gebruik

GO GEORGE het die afgelope maand skole regoor die dorp besoek om leerders wat die busdiens gebruik te help met roetebeplanning.

Skoolkinders is ’n belangrike komponent van die passasiers wat daagliks die GO GEORGE-busdiens gebruik, met meer as 600 van hulle wat bus ry skool toe. Hoewel hulle teen dié tyd baie goed weet hoe om by die skool uit te kom, het die kommunikasiespan van die busdiens agtergekom dat almal dalk nie weet van die verskillende opsies ten opsigte van roetes nie, en ’n uitgebreide roetebeplanningsveldtog afgeskop.

“Ons het leerders sien wag vir busse wat heel waarskynlik reeds vol sal wees wanneer dit hulle bereik, terwyl ander, geriefliker roetes beskikbaar is,” sê James Robb, GO GEORGE-bestuurder. “Komende uit ’n agtergrond van skool toe ry met ’n taxi of skoolbus wat net een roete ry, het hulle nie besef dat hulle nou ’n keuse het en dat die netwerk van roetes hulle verskeie opsies gee nie.”

Die span het weggespring met ’n opname om te bepaal hoeveel leerders in elke skool die busdiens gebruik, en uit watter woongebiede hulle skool toe ry. ’n Unieke kaart wat die verskillende opsies skool toe en terug huis toe uitbeeld, is vir elke skool saamgestel en tydens ’n opvolgbesoek uitgedeel en bespreek met die jong passasiers.

Onderskrif: ommige leerders van George Sekondêre Skool het nie besef hulle kan ook die Pacaltsdorp – Garden Route Mall-bus (Roete 12) neem en by die Mall oorklim op ’n Rosemoor-bus nie. Die drie jong dames  woon almal in Pacaltsdorp en gaan dié opsie toets. Hulle is, van links, Meagan Rondganger, Chanal-Lee Titus en Jenny-lee Samuels.
