No More Old Bus Tickets After Month End

The one-month grace period for GO GEORGE passengers to use old bus tickets that have been bought before the tariff increase of 1 February 2017, expires on 28 February 2017. From 1 March, only new tickets will be accepted.

Cheaper to buy off bus

Single bus tickets bought offbus at vendors now cost R9.00, which is only 50c more than the previous price of R8.50. Passengers are encouraged to buy their tickets before boarding a bus, to save boarding time and enable the system to stay on schedule. To reinforce this practice, a R1.00 additional increase was approved for tickets bought on the bus, those tickets now costing R10.00.If passengers still want to buy tickets on the bus, they are requested to have the exact amount of cash ready to avoid delays. 

The multi-journey ticket which is valid for 10 trips, now costs R85 instead of the previous R75, one trip costing R8.50.

To make it easier for passengers to buy tickets before boarding the bus, the number of ticket vendors in town and in the residential areas have been more than tripled, now standing at 40 (view complete list at www.gogeorge.org.za/fares-tickets). Mobile vendors are also offering tickets to passengers at busy stops during peak time, joining the growing number of businesses that already serve as selling points.

(Any businesses or community members interested in becoming ticket vendors, may contact the GO GEORGE Call Centre on 0800 044 044.)

 

Geen ou kaartjies aanvaar na einde van die maand

Die een-maand grasietydperk vir GO GEORGE-passasiers om ou buskaartjies wat voor die tariefverhoging van 1 Februarie 2017 gekoop is, te gebruik, verstryk op 28 Februarie 2017. Van 1 Maart af sal net nuwe kaartjies aanvaar word.

Goedkoper om buite die bus te koop

Enkelkaartjies wat buite die bus by verkoopspuntegekoop word, kos nou R9.00 – slegs 50c meer as die vorige R8.50. Passasiers word sterk aangemoedig om hul kaartjies te koop voordat hulle op die bus klim, om opklimtyd te spaar en die stelsel op skedule te hou. Om hierdie gebruik te versterk, is ‘n bykomende R1.00 verhoging goedgekeur vir kaartjies wat op die bus gekoop word. Hierdie kaartjie kos dus nou R10.00. Indien passasiers steeds hul kaartjies op die bus wil koop, word hulle versoek om die regte bedrag gereed te hou om vertragings uit te skakel.

Die multiritkaartjies wat vir 10 ritte geldig is, kos nou R85 teenoor die vorige R75, sodat een rit dus R8.50 kos.

Om dit vir passasiers makliker te maak om kaartjies te koop voordat hulle op die bus klim, is die aantal kaartjieverkoopspunte in die dorp en woonbuurtemeer as verdriedubbel tot 40(sien volledige lys by www.gogeorge.org.za/fares-tickets). Mobiele verkopers sluit ook toenemend aan by die groeiende aantal besighede wat kaartjies verkoop, en bied tydens spitstye kaartjies te koop aan by besige bushaltes.

(Enige sakeondernemings of lede van die gemeenskap wat belangstel om kaartjieverkopers te word, kan die GO GEORGE-inbelsentrum by 0800 044 044 skakel.)
