GO GEORGE passengers delighted about timetables and maps at bus stops

GO GEORGE has started applying the latest pole collar stickers displaying route maps and timetables at the transfer bus stops last week. This follows the finalisation of the current bus routes after months of refining and improving routes and schedules to suit passengers’ needs.

Two delighted GO GEORGE passengers finding their way on the new pole collars at the George Transport Hub on Monday. Nellie Rollinson (left) and Koba Pieterse say it is easy to determine when the next bus will arrive, following the simple instructions on the pole collar sticker

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. A red arrow on both maps indicates that particular bus stop (“You are here”).

The other side of the pole collar shows the complete timetables for all the routes that stop at that specific bus stop, with enough information to calculate when the next bus should arrive. Instructions on how to read and interpret the tables are included and easy to follow.

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, and even to have an estimated time of arrival of the next bus.

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.


GO GEORGE-passasiers juig oor roosters en kaarte by bushaltes

GO GEORGE het verlede week begin met die aanbring van die nuutste paalplakkers met roetekaarte en tydroosters by die oorklimbushaltes. Dit volg op die finalisering van die huidige busroetes ná maande van verfyning en verbetering van roetes en skedules om by passasiers se behoeftes aan te pas.

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. ‘n Rooi pyl op albei kaarte dui die bepaalde bushalte aan (“You are here”).

Die ander kant van die paalplakker toon die volledige tydroosters vir al die roetes wat by daardie bushalte stop, asook genoeg inligting om die benaderde tyd wanneer die volgende bus behoort te arriveer, te bereken. Hier is ook maklik verstaanbare aanwysings van hoe om die tydroosters te lees en te vertolk.

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, en selfs om ‘n aanduiding te hê van wanneer om die volgende bus te verwag.

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.
