Currently, GO GEORGE bus tickets can be bought on the bus from the driver, or at shops and businesses that have applied to become ticket vendors. Buying your ticket on the bus, however, slows down the boarding process and makes it difficult for the bus service to stay on schedule and get all passengers to their destinations on time.
For that reason, passengers are encouraged to buy their tickets off-bus. To make it easier for them to do so, GO GEORGE is in the process of expanding its number of ticket vendors, to provide ticket sales points in as many areas as possible.
George Municipality therefore invites applications from businesses, schools, community organisations and even small home businesses like spaza shops to become GO GEORGE ticket vendors.
For more information on what it entails to be a vendor, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Expression of Interest forms are available on the municipal website (www.george.org.za), or at Supply Chain Management, First Floor, George Municipality, 71 York Street.
For more information on and help with the formal application process, please call Henry Mitchell at 044 801 9021 or Allodene Jonas at 044 801 9031.
Applications close on 14 October 2016.
