REMEMBER: Trips on your Smart Card never expire and are valid until used.

GO GEORGE has a distance-based fare system, with the majority of routes in and around the main George urban area falling within the 0-15 km range. The current ticket prices apply to this distance.

Smart Cards

GO GEORGE uses an automated fare collection system in the form of a Smart Card that can be loaded with trips. Trips will be deducted from your balance by holding the card in front of a scanner when you get on the bus. This is in line with other automatic fare systems like Gautrain and MyCiTi in Cape Town. Cashless systems make the bus service faster, safer and more convenient.

Do I have to pay again when I transfer to another bus?

Transfer to another bus to reach your destination is free as long as this happens within one hour from your first boarding. When you board the bus and tap your Smart Card, the card machine will automatically print you a transfer receipt which you must keep to show along with your card when you board a next bus. The time when the one-hour period for free transfer expires, will be printed on your receipt.
