GO GEORGE helps learners to plan best route

Elethu Ntazini and Asisebenzele Josias live in Lawaaikamp and travel by bus to Pacaltsdorp Secondary School. GO GEORGE communication champion Janell Gelant helped them understand how different routes can take them to school and home.

After a successful programme last year, 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.  Senior learners also use this opportunity to learn how to use the network of routes and fixed schedules to their advantage.

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

“Although most know their route to school, those who start high school this year might not be aware of the different routes and transfers available to get them to their new schools,” says Morné Lakay, Acting 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 explained to the young passengers at bus stops near the schools or during group visits to the school. These maps can also be downloaded from the School Routes page.

Any schools that would like to request a visit from the GO GEORGE communications team can leave a message at the Call Centre by phoning 0800 044 044. The Call Centre agents are also well-informed and equipped to assist passengers with trip planning.
