GO GEORGE helps learners to plan best route

Heatherlands High school maps
GO GEORGE visited Heatherlands High School this week to inform the Grade 8s about their options to travel to school by bus from the different areas of town. Here GO GEORGE communications champion Alicia April explains the map to (from left) Rochane Hendricks from Rosemoor, Samantha Oktober from Pacaltsdorp and (at the back) Rohanic Jansen from Blanco. They all use the bus to get to school.

After a hugely successful programme the past two years, GO GEORGE has embarked on another round of school visits, familiarising grade 8 learners who take the bus to school, with their different route options.

School children are an important component of passengers using the GO GEORGE bus service daily.

“Although most know their route to school, those who started high school this year might not be aware of the different routes and transfers available to get them to their new schools,” says James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager. “We see learners waiting at bus stops, hoping to get onto a bus that might already be full by the time it reaches them, while another more convenient route is available on our network that connects the different areas in town.”

A unique map depicting the different options available to school and back home has been created for each school and is being handed out and discussed with the young passengers during a visit by the GO GEORGE communications team.
