GO GEORGE: Helping you find your way

After a trial round of pole collar stickers earlier this year, GO GEORGE was ready to apply the next round of pole collars displaying route information at the bus stops on Route 56 Denneoord – CBD last week. 
The pole collars are the white plastic boxes applied to the bus stop poles, designed to fit the vinyl stickers with route information. Each bus stop has its own unique set of stickers, displaying the timetables and route maps of only those routes that stop there. On the one side is a line map of the routes stopping at that particular stop, and a system map giving the passenger an overview of where the different routes run and where they can transfer between routes to reach their destination. 
The other side of the pole collar shows the complete timetables for all the routes that stop at that specific bus stop. Feedback on the trial batch resulted in one major improvement, with every stop's pole collar now indicating the exact times that buses will depart at that particular stop. The previous pole collars displayed the departure times at the starting point of the route, and passengers had to make a calculation as to the expected time of arrival at their stop. 
The timetables and route maps have always been available on the GO GEORGE website, but having them available for everyone to see right at the bus stop, will enable passengers to plan their bus trips better, especially if they are not regular bus users, or familiar with the specific route. 
Pole collars for the remainder of the currently active routes will follow in the new year.
For any enquiries about the bus service, phone the GO GEORGE Call Centre on 0800 044 044, visit the Facebook page or go to the website at www.gogeorge.org.za.

CAPTION:
Juanita September (left) and Mac Mc Kenzie both live in Blanco and take the bus to work. They work at a fabric shop in Cradock Street, right at the Cathedral C stop where pole collars were applied last week. The ladies were most impressed with the presentation of the information, and especially the departure times from the particular stop for all the routes that use this stop.

GO GEORGE: Roete-inligting vir passasiers
Ná ’n proefneming met paalplakkers by bushaltes vroeër vanjaar, kon GO GEORGE verlede week die volgende rondte plakkers met roete-inligting by die bushaltes op Roete 56 Denneoord – CBD aanbring. 
Die wit plastiekkassies aan die bushalte-pale is ontwerp om vinielplakkers met roete-inligting te dra. Elke bushalte het sy eie stel plakkers wat slegs die tydrooster en roetekaarte van roetes wat by daardie halte stop, toon. Aan die een kant is ‘n lynkaart van die roetes wat by daardie bepaalde halte stilhou, en ‘n stelselkaart wat die passasier ‘n oorsig gee van waar die verskillende roetes loop en waar hulle kan oorklim tussen roetes om hul bestemming te bereik. 
Die ander kant van die paalplakker toon die volledige tydroosters vir al die roetes wat by daardie bushalte stop. Terugvoer ná die vorige toetsrondte het tot een groot verbetering gelei, met elke bushalte se paalplakker wat nou die presiese vertrektye vanaf daardie spesifieke halte bevat. Die voriges het die vertrektye by die beginpunt van die roete aangedui, sodat passasiers moes bereken hoe laat die bus naastenby by hul stop sou wees. 
Tydroosters en roetekaarte was nog altyd beskikbaar op die GO GEORGE-webblad, maar om hulle nou beskikbaar te hê by die bushalte waar almal dit kan sien, sal passasiers in staat stel om hul ritte beter te beplan, veral as hulle nie gereelde busgebruikers is nie, of nie bekend is met die roete nie. 
Paalplakkers vir die res van die huidige aktiewe roetes sal in die nuwe jaar aangebring word.
Vir enige busverwante navrae, skakel gerus die GO GEORGE-inbelkantoor by 0800 044 044, besoek die Facebook-blad of gaan na die webblad by www.gogeorge.org.za.

ONDERSKRIF:
Juanita September (links) en Mac Mc Kenzie woon albei in Blanco en ry bus werk toe. Hulle werk by ’n materiaalwinkel in Cradockstraat, reg by die Cathedral C-halte waar paalplakkers verlede week aangebring is. Die dames is hoogs beïndruk met die aanbieding van die inligting, en veral die vertrektye vanaf die spesifieke halte vir al die roetes wat daarlangs loop.
