GO GEORGE News Flash

Buses to suit peak time needs from Pacaltsdorp to Garden Route Mall

Buses to suit peak time needs from Pacaltsdorp to Garden Route Mall

A thorough monitoring of the need and capacity of the GO GEORGE bus service on Route 12 Pacaltsdorp - Garden Route Mall was initiated following the receipt of several complaints.

Upon completion of the investigation, GO GEORGE is confident that the service does allow for sufficient capacity during peak hours. A campaign to inform passengers and employers once again of the morning schedule and the rotation of midi- and minibuses to suit all needs, has been launched on Thursday, 25 September. This will assist passengers to plan their trips so as to be on time for work.

Different size buses run at different times. The minibuses can carry 15 passengers, and the midibuses 78. The reason that certain bus sizes are chosen for certain times, is to allow for not only bus journey time, but also to make allowance for passengers to disembark and walk to their destination, for example the other side of the Mall.

It would appear that the number of morning peak trips are sufficient, at this stage, to distribute passengers and avoid congestion or full buses.

Passengers who experience any problems with schedules or routes, are kindly requested to report such issues to the GO GEORGE Call Centre on 0800 044 044, and not to take it up with the bus drivers who are working according to government-instructed schedules and orders. 

 

Genoeg busse vir spitstydbehoefte van Pacaltsdorp na Garden Route Mall

Deeglike monitering van die  behoefte en kapasiteit van die GO GEORGE-busdiens op Roete 12 Pacaltsdorp - Garden Route Mall, is van stapel gestuur nadat verskeie klagtes in die verband ontvang is.

Ná voltooiing van die ondersoek, is GO GEORGE oortuig dat die busdiens wel voorsiening maak vir genoeg kapasiteit tydens spitstye. ‘n Veldtog om passasiers en werkgewers weer in te lig oor die oggendskedule en rotasie van mini- en midibusse om in alle behoeftes te voorsien, is Donderdag, 25 September, geloods.  Dit sal passasiers help om hul ritte so te beplan dat hulle betyds kan wees vir werk.

Verskillende groottes busse word op verskillende tye gebruik. Die minibus kan 15 passasiers dra, en die midibus 78.  Die rede vir sekere busse op sekere tye, is om toe te laat  vir reistyd, sowel as vir passasiers om af te klim en na hul bestemming te loop, byvoorbeeld na die anderkant van die Mall.

Dit blyk dat die oggendspitstydritte in hierdie stadium voldoende is om passasiers te versprei en opeenhoping en oorvol busse uit te skakel.

Passasiers wat probleme ondervind met die skedules of roetes, word vriendelik versoek om dit by die GO GEORGE-inbelsentrum by 0800 044 044 aan te meld, via die webblad www.gogeorge.org.za, of deur ‘n e-pos na info@gogeorge.org.za te stuur, en dit nie met die busbestuurders, wat werk volgens skedules en opdragte wat deur die regering voorgeskryf is, op te neem nie.
