The well-loved GO GEORGE mascot has been named at last, following a competition whereby the public was asked to submit possible names for the cute bus character. By far the most entries suggested that he should be called Georgie.
During a panel discussion last week, George Director of Civil Engineering Services, Harold Basson, was asked to draw a winner from the hat containing the names of all the competition participants who had suggested this name. The lucky winner of the naming competition is Anneke Andrews, who received a GO GEORGE drawstring bag with GO GEORGE promotional items and a multi-journey ticket from George Executive Mayor, Cllr Melvin Naik.
Anneke and her family moved to George a few years ago, and were most pleased to learn that a bus service of this calibre was about to roll out in their new hometown. “We love taking trips on the GO GEORGE buses, and will definitely put our multi-journey ticket to good use,” she said.
