MUNICIPAL STUDY TOUR TO LEARN ABOUT GO GEORGE

Sixteen delegates from four municipalities visited George for two days this week to learn more about the GO GEORGE public transport system, with the view of introducing public transport in their cities and towns.

Municipal officials and consultants from Manguang, Msunduzi, Drakenstein and the Cape Winelands were invited to participate in a two-day programme hosted by the George Municipality and the Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works.

 A workshop on day one shared valuable information about the negotiation process, the development of infrastructure, the design of suitable vehicles, the contributions of the different role-players, lessons learnt and challenges encountered on the way, as well as after roll-out of the first phases.

 On the second day, delegates took advantage of question and answer sessions, after which they enjoyed a bus tour which highlighted infrastructure requirements and stops and transfer points.  The final site visit was to the George Link depot, the latter being an eye-opener as to the infrastructure and personnel required to run a public transport service.
