Training for bus drivers on new GO GEORGE routes

While the GO GEORGE communication champions have been engaging with residents in Parkdene, Ballotsview, Conville Borcherds and Lawaaikamp where the bus service will be rolling out new routes on 22 March 2020, bus drivers will also start route training in the area on Wednesday 11 March until roll-out.

“It will sure be exciting to see the buses crisscrossing the area for the first time, but residents need to take note that these are only training trips in preparation for the big day on 22 March and that buses will not be picking up passengers,” said GO GEORGE Manager James Robb.

The four routes include three main routes, Parkdene – CBD (Route 15), Parkdene – Garden Route Mall (Route 16), Parkdene – Blanco (Route 18), and a comprehensive community route (Route 51). This will connect these neighbourhoods with existing GO GEORGE routes operating in and between the CBD, Pacaltsdorp, Denneoord, Loerie Park, Rosemoor, Blanco, Heatherlands, Heather Park, and the Garden Route Mall.


Opleiding vir busbestuurders op nuwe GO GEORGE-roetes

Terwyl die GO GEORGE-passasiersdiensbeamptes (alom bekend as champions) al ’n rukkie besig is om inwoners in Parkdene, Ballotsview, Conville, Borcherds en Lawaaikamp in te lig oor die busdiens wat op 22 Maart 2020 nuwe roetes in die gebied ontplooi, begin busbestuurders ook met roete-opleiding vanaf Woensdag 11 Maart tot en met implementering.

“Dit sal sekerlik opwindend wees om die busse vir die eerste keer in die area te sien rondry, maar inwoners moet kennis neem dat hierdie slegs oefenritte ter voorbereiding vir die groot dag op 22 Maart is en dat busse nie passasiers sal oplaai nie,” sê GO GEORGE-bestuurder, James Robb.

Die vier roetes bestaan uit drie hoofroetes, Parkdene – CBD (roete 15), Parkdene – Garden Route Mall (roete 16), Parkdene – Blanco (roete 18), en ‘n omvattende gemeenskapsroete (roete 51). Dit sal hierdie woonbuurte verbind met bestaande GO GEORGE-roetes wat in en tussen die middedorp, Pacaltsdorp, Denneoord, Loeriepark, Rosemoor, Blanco, Heatherlands, Heatherpark en die Garden Route Mall ry.
